About me

Debashish Bhattacharya

Musician, Pioneer of Hindustani Slide Guitar, Music Educator

Indian Raga Music thrives on improvisation. No two performances by the same musician produce the same result. For a musician with substance, therefore, the sky is the limit. His improvisations within the framework of a Raga or within the limitations of the instrument he plays become a novel experience for himself as well as his listeners. Some go beyond Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya and open new horizons in the field of their work. Debashish Bhattacharya is one such most amazing music personalities of the world whose dynamism of artistry and creativity place him as a Genius.

His debut at the age of four was broadcast by All India RadioCalcutta, and was blessed by the late Ustad Karamatullah Khan of Farukhabad Gharana who accompanied him on the Tabla. At twenty he received President of India Award for winning National Music competition of All India Radio. Debashish, in his thirties only, was awarded the Top Grade, the ultimate honour by the Prasar Bharati Ministry of information and Broadcasting of India. His charisma as a Musician, Composer, Innovator, Revolutionary, Guru, and the Director of international slide Guitar Parivar (family) has attracted devotees of music from all the nooks and corners of the world.

He immensely influenced the imaginative ability of his fellow musicians. As a powerful slide guitarist he has already set a new trend among fellow musicians. The composer in him does not believe in the East and the West in music. Universal Human Music is his faith and he believes that it gives peace and joy to the believers.

The performer in Debashish has the rare ability to communicate to each one of his listeners through his instrument in every performance. He has introduced a new finger style as well as playing style combining thumb and index finger. This produces finest bole variety, fastest Taanas, and strongest Jhala, which were technically impossible on a slide guitar earlier. A dedicated Guru and pathfinder Debashish has written a syllabus on Indian Classical Guitar, the first of its kind, which includes technical terminologies and abbreviations.

Debashish's uncanny sense of musical understanding has established him as a recording artiste whose perfect musicality matches all categories of music be it Indian, or any kind of classical, jazz, blues, folk or Nue Music.

He is perhaps the only phenomenon in the History of The World Music and Indian Classical Music who created a TRINITY OF SLIDE GUITARS. Christened as CHATURANGUIGANDHARVI, and ANANDI, these, according to Bob Brozman are "the new arms and ammunitions to fight against ignorance".  Recently Debashish created a brand new creation never seen before – Pushpa Veena
