Episode 12 and the final episode of Season 1 of the Sound Check Project featuring the track “Corridors” by Amyt Datta and Jivraj Singh.
Amyt Datta / Guitar, Synth / is India’s pre-eminent guitar explorer. Rolling Stone Magazine calls him the country’s “true live guitar god”.
The road was Amyt’s teacher. In the 1980’s, he cut his teeth touring with famed rock & roll band Shiva. They went hard, like no Indian band since. Next, he and Monojit Datta formed D for brother. The short lived, but prolific, duo played intricately designed culture blend music long before it became the hip thing to do. With Indian indie pioneers Skinny Alley, he co-wrote, produced and played on the first English language album by an Indian band to get a major label release.
In recent years, Amyt has moved away from a purely guitaristic focus and is journeying down a dangerous path of dissonant poetry. The reward: un-imagined beauty.
Listen to Amyt’s solo album – ‘Ambiance de Danse’
“Ambiance de Danse” is the debut studio album from Indian experimental/world duo Amyt Datta (guitar, synth, composition) and Jivraj Singh (drums, electronics, design).
