Mukerji, Rahul: Ma De Re Sha

If you are in the mood for some intelligent instrumental guitar-centric rock music look no further than the latest platter by India born musician Rahul Mukerji. The disc is titled Ma De Re Sha and is the work of Mukerji (guitars, guitar synth, e-bow, sampling, tablas, drum programming) and Bruce Ng (additional drum and percussion programming). The disc was produced and arranged by both musicians.

Western rock is married with more exotic elements like tablas and Eastern flavoured motifs. This is a muscular album due to the exceptional guitar ability from Mukerji. His heavy grooves can be heard on the catchy opener "Exit 13", an excellent beginning to the album. The riffs and lead guitar work is exceptional and the tablas offer those Eastern tones developed in his homeland. On the pretty "Sita" mellow guitar arpeggios and flute samples turn into more heavier sounds as an influx of intense guitar and ultra-fast soloing ups the pace without losing the song's melodicism. Proving his versatility the artist delves into wonderful acoustic playing on the absorbing "Fingerprints". His nylon work is absolutely spellbinding here. Another excellent track is "Children of I-2" showcasing tasty acoustic rhythms and lightning fast soloing, a sort of fusion neoclassical sound. This is perhaps the catchiest track on the disc. The calm "A Path Less Travelled" features wonderfully clean toned guitar, very pretty from both a melodic and harmonic sense.

All guitar fans need to hear Mukerji play his guitar. It's really that simple.
