In this unique performance, three extraordinary musicians come together to celebrate the beauty of Indian Classical music and its long association with Jazz. Manish Pingle is one of the world’s leading Mohan Veena (Indian Slide Guitar) players. The world class musician is a disciple of Ustad Shahid Parvez, the renowned sitar maestro. Joining him on stage is Gurdain Rayatt, a disciple of Pandit Shankar Ghosh and is one of the UK’s leading tabla players, having  accompanied many of India’s most prestigious artists. Completing the line up is electric guitarist, Jack Jennings. Jack studied the sitar with Donough Sanfay, a disciple of Amarnath Mishra, and is known for his pioneering approach to the adaptation of Indian classical music for the electric guitar.

The Trio will take the audiences on a dynamic and exciting journey through the world of Indian Classical music. Whilst the music they play is in keeping with tradition, the innovative inclusion of the electric guitar embraces new timbres and melodic nuances without compromising the original spirit and intensity of the music. This is a rare combination of instruments and musicians from different backgrounds, celebrating the music that brought them together.
