We are mighty excited about this upcoming gig at Phoenix Bar/Club.
We bring you TJE X with Amyt Datta feat TL Mazumder, Aakash Ganguly & Jivraj Singh followed by a performance by iconic producer/composer Lushlife
Amyt Datta is India's preeminent guitar explorer. Rolling Stone Magazine calls him the country's "true live guitar god".
The road was Amyt's teacher. In the 1980's, he cut his teeth touring with famed rock & roll band Shiva. They went hard, like no Indian band since. Next, he and Monojit Datta formed D for brother. The short lived, but prolific, duo played intricately designed culture blend music long before it became the hip thing to do. With Indian indie pioneers Skinny Alley, he co-wrote, produced and played on the first English language album by an Indian band to get a major label release. His work with electronic fusion leaders PINKNOISE sees him mix devious synth explorations with jagged shards of rhythm guitar.
In his solo work, Amyt has moved away from a purely guitaristic focus and is journeying down a dangerous path of dissonant poetry.
Amyt is a polarising artist, his work equally inspiring adoration and alienation. Which suits him fine - he never takes the middle path.
Under the name Lushlife, Raj Haldar has written and produced some of the most critically-acclaimed indie hip-
hop albums of the last decade. His work has been featured in the New York Times, Pitchfork, FADER,Interview Magazine, SPIN, The Village Voice, and more.
Over the years, Raj has created with and produced for a
wide variety of artists, including Ariel Pink, Killer Mike,
Styles P, Das Racist, RJD2, and more. With more than a
decade of classical piano and jazz percussion training, as
well as a strong composition and orchestration
background, Raj creates from a far-reaching musical
palette, as evidenced by his genre-bending albums.
As a DJ, he has been tasked with programming a new,
cutting-edge musical experience for Philadelphia Eagles
fans at home games for the last two seasons.
