Kolkata based Indian Jazz Fusion / Modern Jazz outfit “The Bodhisattwa Trio, with Bodhisattwa Ghosh (compositions, guitar), Premjit Dutta (drums) and Arunava Chatterjee (keyboards & synth bass) will be live at Live at No Black Tie 14 & 18 March 2019 and deliver a sound that crosses over the barriers of genres and one that can only be termed as “unique”, with special emphasis on harmonic and rhythmic expansion, expressionism, theme and variation, virtuosity and spontaneous improvisation.
Formed in 2012, the trio has under their belt a 4-track EP Fuzzy Logic and 2 full length instrumental albums Intersections and Heart of Darkness, and successfully toured Europe (England, Slovenia, Croatia, France) and Bangladesh in 2014 following their debut album. Their sophomore effort launched in May 2016, has received critical acclaim throughout India and abroad, being the highest selling independent album in India for the month of June 2016, “Album of the year 2016” by Mid-Day, Mumbai, “One of the top 10 albums of 2016” by Rolling Stone India and The Hindu, Bangalore.
They’ve just launched their third album the banner of Croatian Record Label, Intek Music. The album promises to take you on a sonic trip from ambient trip hop to industrial drum’n’bass to contemporary music; parallels driving the album conceptually towards the abstract, conflicting and grey areas of the human mind, hence, calling it The Grey Album.
