Michael Messer’s Mitra

Michael Messer’s Mitra are a unique and thrilling fusion of American blues with Hindustani classical music. With Michael’s slide guitar (he designed it himself), Manish Pingles’ Indian slide guitar (called a Mohan veena) underpinned by percussion maestro Gurdain Rayatt playing polyrythmic  tabla, the trio create memorable international aural magic. Mannish is travelling from Mumbai to Newnham specially to make this unique event with music that has travelled from the banks of the Mississippi via London and the Ganges delta to the shores of the Severn.
