Trio Benaras at India Habitat Centre, Delhi

Share

Featuring:

Roger Hanschel: Saxophone
Deobrat Mishra: Sitar
Prashant Mishra – Tabla

There has been a force of gravity between Indian Classical music and Jazz for many decades – the push and pull of information, the exciting rhythmic language. Founded in 2014, the Trio Benares continues on this path of tradition. As part of a seventh generation musical family, Sitar player Deobrat Mishra has reached a prominent place amongst his peers. In collaboration with his nephew Prashant Mishra, a rising star among Indian tabla players, he forms a perfect unit.

Roger Hanschel, surely one of the most extravagant, multi-faceted saxophone players and composers of contemporary jazz, communes with the sensual and brilliant sound of Deobrat Mishra’s sitar. In turn, Hanschel’s rhythmic finesse finds its equivalent in the virtuosic tabla playing of Prashant Mishra. While steeped in tradition, Trio Benares brings a freshness to both musical styles.
