Guitarist-composer Sanjay Mishra has been described as a brilliant and innovative musician. Born In India, subsequently becoming a citizen of the United States, Sanjay plays with an eclecticism well suited to his multicultural background. In an interview with The Washington Post, he explains "I come from a tradition that has a lot of improvisation. Sometimes Western classical music can seem a little rigid, I had to find some middle ground."
Sanjay first came to public acclaim for his album "Blue Incantation" with guitarist Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead. It is one of Mr. Garcia's rare collaborations in his late years and represents some of his last works.
His latest CD Chateau Benares (October 2006) with guest appearances by DJ Logic and Keller Williams among others, was received with rave reviews on National Public Radio and The Washington Post.
