Award winning saxophonist and composer Matt Keegan, together with master bassist Steve Elphick, combine with three dynamic and creative musicians from West Bengal, India for this unique cross cultural project.

An astonishing and fresh collaboration created in India’s Rajasthan desert, blending traditional and contemporary musical cultures from India and Australia. The Three Seas combines elements of Indian folk music with a western style of song form and production. Centre stage is the outstanding folk singer Raju Das Baul. His amazing stage presence, arresting voice and virtuosic khamak playing showcase the best of the Baul tradition. Deo Ashis Mothey brings his enigmatic style from the mountains in Darjeeling, while Kolkata based rock drummer, Gaurab Chatterjee (from the famous Bengali band Lakkhichhara), smoothly bridges musical cultures. Band leader and saxophonist Matt Keegan with master bassist Steve Elphick complete the unique sound of the band. Sydney saxophonist Matt Keegan was awarded the 2011 Freedman Jazz Fellowship. His proposal was to transform the Piramal Haveli (an Italian inspired structure in the village of Bagar deep in the Rajasthan desert) into a recording studio and create an original set of music by The Three Seas.
