Michael Messer’s Mitra
July 27 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm£12
Magnificent Indian Blues!
“The most exciting and creative blues innovation I have heard in years!” David Freeman, Jazz FM
Mitra (pronounced ‘meetra’) is a trio comprising British Blues innovator and slide guitarist, Michael Messer, Hindustani slide guitar maestro from India, Manish Pingle, and London-based tabla master, Gurdain Singh Rayatt.
This is more than another meeting of musicians from different cultures; it is a band with a successful album and its own unique sound, an exhilarating and highly accessible fusion of Blues and Hindustani classical music.
The album Call Of The Blues released in 2016, was immediately picked up by the blues, folk and world music media, getting worldwide radio airplay and press coverage in more than 40 countries and hitting No.1 in the iTunes blues chart.
