Jay Kishor, Electric Guitarist

Sitar and surbahar virtuoso, Jay Kishor, brings to the art of the electric guitar an intense discipline in world music culminating from an intensive fifteen-year period of study in India in the traditional "master-disciple" training with renowned masters, after having been awarded a Ford Fellowship. Raised in America, Jay combines elements from world, European classical, jazz, Blues, country and rock music and deftly incorporates his extensive knowledge of Ragas (ancient Indian melodies) into his improvisations. Jay approaches the electric guitar as a storyteller in the language of music.
