Indian slide guitar



Debanish Bhattacharya is the pioneer of the indian slide guitar, playing raga with the same technical than the hawaiian style.
The first Indian artist to use a steel guitar within classical Indian music was Brij Bhushan Kabra, bringing the guitar into Indian classical music. 

Debashish was a child prodigy who started playing guitar at the age of three.
Initiated into Indian classical vocal, and studying under Brij Bhushan Kabra as well Ustad Ali Akbar Khan (sarod) , he was drawn to the guitar because of the way it could emulate the human voice with a slide.
His performances with his brother Subhasis on tabla are amazing.
