Biography

Indian guitarist Prasanna was one of the first musicians who succeeded in converting Indian Carnatic music into a jazz and rock context. With this he bridged one of the oldest forms of music and that of the 20th and 21st century.

This unique cross-fertilisation developed into his trademark and brought him to masters like Joe Lovano, Larry Coryell, Trilok Gurtu and Airto Moreira. He is also known for his work as a composer of film scores, including the Oscar nominated films 'Smile Pinki' (2009) and the Bollywood film 'Lagaan'.

He can also be found in his own projects such as the Electric Ganesha Land project, Raga Bop Trio, Tirtha (trio with Vijay Iyer on piano), etc. In our country he is mainly known for his contribution to the record 'Guitars' (2002) by Aka Moon, which was released on our label.
