Guggenheim fellow and DownBeat Critics Poll winner Rudresh Mahanthappa is one of the most innovative voices in jazz today. Drawing inspiration from the musical traditions of his Indian heritage and the African-American roots of jazz, Mahanthappa sets out to create something entirely new-and undeniably funky. Joined by Pakistani-American guitarist Rez Abbasi and tabla expert Dan Weiss, Mahanthappa shatters preconceptions of Indo-jazz fusion, "heralding," according to DownBeat, "a new reality in jazz."
