Special edition re-release of the CD 3: Calcutta Slide Guitar with new bonus DVD featuring a performance of the album filmed in Calcutta. Pandit (master) Debashish Bhattacharya is one of the world's most remarkable slide guitarists and this album represents the culmination of a lifetime of intensive study, performance and innovation. All the guitars heard on 3: Calcutta Slide-Guitar are unique instruments designed by Debashish himself, a Trinity of Guitars - Chaturangui, Gandharvi and Anandi - representing three generations of instruments, while also continuing a thousand-year tradition of music. 3: Calcutta Slide-Guitar dazzles the listener with hypnotic patterns and stunning music shaped from Debashish's original three-finger picking technique.
