Debashish Bhattacharya and Bob Brozman: Mahima

By RUPERT BOTTENBERG



Bhattacharya and Brozman are a pair of outstanding slide guitarists, Brozman in the Hawaiian manner and Bhattacharya in his own original Hindustani style. The latter turns up on the latest from Montreal's own Ramasutra, while Brozman works a Ry Cooder angle, jamming with exceptional guitarists from around the world. The two share a remarkable degree of facility, clarity and adventurousness with their instruments. Some of the album's finest moments see them choosing a third, neutral headspace for their Hindu-waiian exchange - note the flamenco flavour of "Sur-o-Lahari" or the African accents of "Bana Mali." Whatever the map coordinates, though, the dialogue is lively, substantial and eloquent. 8.5/10
