The Guitar Prasanna Trio makes its Kalaa Utsavam debut with a captivating fusion of musical ideas and energies!
Consisting of frontman and guitarist Prasanna, bass phenomenon Mohini Dey and Surinamese master drummer Harvey Wirht, the trio perform hits from Prasanna’s iconic albums Be the Change, Electric Ganesha Land, All Terrain Guitar and the latest Bowling for Peace. Experience their signature musical style that blends Western genres such as rock, metal, blues and funk with carnatic music.
A fearless innovator in contemporary music and yet steeped in the authentic carnatic tradition, Prasanna is a pioneer in performing carnatic music on an electric guitar. He has performed and recorded with multiple Grammy-winning artists including Esperanza Spalding, Victor Wooten and Joe Lovano. Besides Pandit Ravishankar and A.R. Rahman, Prasanna is the only other Indian composer to have scored the music for an Oscar-winning film. In 2003, he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award for carnatic music by H.H. Shri Jayendra Saraswathi.
One of the most well-known young bassists in the world, Mohini Dey has stunned the bass fraternity with her daredevil chops combined with exceptional musicianship. The Indian bass sensation has performed with an array of superstars from Steve Vai and A.R. Rahman, to Alex Lifeson of Rush and Zakir Hussain.
Surinamese drummer Harvey Wirht brings an extraordinary level of musical diversity to his explosive playing. He has played with great artists across the globe from the legendary Harry Belafonte and Cameroonian master singer Gino Sitson, to Morroccan singing star Mallika Zara. Wirht performed at notable occasions including President Obama’s Peace Ball event, the Nobel Peace Prize event, the Late Show with David Letterman, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
