Debashish Bhattacharya Beyond the Ragasphere

Calcutta-based musician Debashish Bhattacharya gave his first guitar recital at the age of four.

A virtuoso slide-guitarist who has customised his own instruments, Debashish has also developed a unique style of playing that fuses classical Indian tradition with all manner of global influences, over a career spanning 30 years.

Debashish talks with Trevor Reekie, from his home in Calcutta, about how musical harmony compliments the harmony of life.
