Trilok Gurtu Band

Since 2005 I've had the honour of playing with Trilok Gurtu, the master percussionist from India. He has been a kind of icon for me as I was growing up and listening to the great players and innovators of our time and I definately put Trilok in this category.

The band line-up varies occasionally but members have included Carlo Cantini (Italy) Jan Ozveren (Great Britain) Stefano Dell'Ora (Italy) Gross Ngolle Pokossi (Cameroon, bass) and myself. To date, my onstage set is less percussion orientated and I'm mostly playing bansuri, flutes, didgeridoo, santoor and soprano sax on the gig. It's well worth your time to make it to the gigs if there's one in your country (or even not!) and the venues so far have been packed out with a great atmosphere. There are up-and-coming gigs listed in the Concert Info section on this site or you can check out Trilok's site at www.trilokgurtu.net for all info relating to shows, recordings etc.
