Event description

Description

Sometimes we hear a piece of music that makes such an impression on us that we have to track down the people who made the sounds and do whatever it takes to bring them to the Club. This is one such occasion and we are very excited to annouce that Mitra is coming to Ventnor.

Mitra is a unique musical trio and a true musical friendship. A unique fusion of blues slide guitar, Hindustani classical slide guitar and tabla rhythms.

'Mitra' (pronounced 'meetra') is friends, the Hindu god of friendship and alliance.

Michael Messer's Mitra is a trio comprising British blues innovator and slide guitarist, Michael Messer, Hindustani slide guitar maestro from Mumbai India, Manish Pingle, and London-based tabla master, Gurdain Singh Rayatt. The debut album, Call Of The Blues, on Knife Edge Records, distributed by Proper Music Distribution. Call Of The Blues was released in February 2016 and 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 number one in the iTunes Blues Chart.

This is more than another meeting of musicians from different cultures, this is a band with a successful album and its own unique sound; an exhilarating and highly accessible fusion of blues and Hindustani classical music. With vocals, slide guitars and tabla, these three musicians from opposite sides of the globe create a fascinating musical journey, running from the banks of the Mississippi, via London to Mumbai and the Ganges delta.

Michael Messer - Vocals, slide and lap steel guitar
Manish Pingle - Indian slide guitar (Mohan veena)

“The most exciting and creative blues innovation I have heard in years!”
