"Prem Joshua is the new Guru of East-West Fusion Music" The TIMES OF INDIA on his Delhi Concert
The fusion sitar master, Indian flutist, soprano sax player and composer Prem Joshua is a World Music pioneer, creating a new musical synthesis beyond the borders of East and West. Having traveled between India and Europe for over twenty years, Prem Joshua has studied with some of Indias finest musicians, including sitar maestro Ustad Usman Khan. Joshua draws deeply from the well of eastern traditions, but has never lost touch with the pulse of contemporary western music.
Over the years he has refined his distinctive sound, blending the sensuous instrumentation of ancient India with evocative melodies, modern electronica grooves and danceable ethnic rhythms. His creative musical blend has brought recognition from critics, music lovers and the press throughout the East and West. In India he is celebrated as the new guru of fusion."
Accompanied by the versatile tabla and santoor player, Manish Vyas, Prem Joshua has toured around the world, giving highly acclaimed concerts in Malaysia, Japan, Israel, India, Europe and the USA. A native of Germany, he now lives among the beautiful Tuscan hills of Italy.
Master musicianship is immediately apparent in the music: in the playing, the composition and the transmission of both deep meditative states and full-throttle blissfull joy. Whether in live performance or on high quality CD, Prem Joshua and his musical companions invoke a memorable and finely woven tapestry of sonic magic.
