Bodhisattwa Trio, Bijit Bhattacharya,
The Bodhisattwa rio is an Avant Garde Jazz-Rock outfit which believes in the expression of unadulterated human feelings, in the form of sounds created from the deep dark corners of the human mind. Exploring the dark and negative side of human psychology, and depicting a unique mix of Jazz, Funk, drum-n-bass, Indian classical music, Rock and Blues, the trio (with Bodhisattwa Ghosh on guitars, Bijit Bhattacharya on bass and Premjit Dutta on drums) delivers a mix of original instrumental compositions that can only be described as “Dark Jazz”. It has a special emphasis on harmonic and rhythmic expansion, expressionism, theme and variation, virtuosity and spontaneous improvisation.
Formed in 2012, the trio has under their belt a 4-track EP, “Fuzzy Logic” and 2 full length instrumental albums “Intersections” and “Heart of Darkness”. They have successfully toured Europe (England, Slovenia, Croatia, France) and Bangladesh in 2014 following their debut album “Intersections”. “Heart of Darkness”, launched in May 2016, has received critical acclaim throughout India and abroad, being the highest selling independent album in India for the month of June 2016, and has been awarded as the best Funk/Fusion album in the world for August 2016 by “The Akademia Music Awards” Los Angeles, USA.
On a promotional tour of their 2nd album, “Heart of Darkness”, “The Bodhisattwa Trio” played in venues across India like Blue Frog (Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore), Max Mueller Bhavan (Kolkata), The Piano Man Jazz Club (New Delhi) to name a few, and are all set to tour the continent of Europe in summer 2017, comprising of original compositions from their 2nd album as well as newer tunes which will make up their 3rd album, set to be recorded early next year.
