Ross Hammond & Sameer Gupta in Duo
Guitarist Ross Hammond and Tablaist Sameer Gupta have been making music together for the past twenty years. Their current project mixes jazz, blues and Appalachian folk music with North Indian Classical music. Hammond uses a variety of acoustic guitars in collaboration with Gupta’s tabla setup. Their 2016 release Upward made the "Best of 2016” list at The Daily Beast and NYC’s Big City Blog.
"Beautifully cohesive...the music exists in a timeless realm that touches on jazz, Hindustani music, spirituals and country without residing in any particular style."
-Andrew Gilbert, The California Report.
