Tabla virtuoso Bickram Ghosh, son of tabla veteran maestro Shankar Ghosh, is known not only as a classical accompanist of stars like Ravi Shankar and Ali Akbar Khan. He also made an outstanding name as an innovative fusion musician in recent years. In his own project Rhythmscape, he developed an interesting combination of Indian music with jazz and electronica. His new album "Electro Classical" pushes the idea of electrification of Indian music another step ahead. Without abandoning the vibrant percussive energy of his earlier works, Bickram Ghosh now uses electronic sounds or electronically modified traditional Indian instruments almost exclusively, thus creating a whole new fascinating new-age sound for Indian music.
