Jeff Lang and Bobby Singh
Jeff Lang has earned worldwide acclaim as a guitarist, dynamic songwriter and startlingly unique live performer, defying description and genres. His intuitive and idiosyncratic instrumental virtuosity are supported by songs that expand the boundaries of traditional folk, country and blues, creating a new blend of music which is undeniably and deeply steeped in tradition, yet with its vision set on future horizons. As an instrumental storyteller, Lang gives the guitar a voice and then makes it sing.
Bobby Singh spent much of his childhood in Mumbai studying tabla. Recognised with a great talent, Bobby is the disciple of Aneesh Pradhan, one of the world’s most sought after tabla players. Nurtured into a mature, internationally renowned tabla virtuoso, both in traditional Indian and cross-cultural genres, Bobby has played with many of the top musicians in Australia and the world.
Together these Australian based musicians first met musically through their Aria Award winning world music project “Djan Djan” with Malian kora player, Mamadou Diabate.
Jeff and Bobby’s relationship has endured beyond this project into a musical meeting point of folk, blues and Indian influences yet with it’s own distinctive personality.
Their next collaboration involves Rajasthani musicians Asin Langa & Bhungar Manganiyar in Maru Tarang.
