Brandon McIntosh - Sarod

Brandon McIntosh, a celebrated sarodist and disciple of Pandit Buddhadev Dasgupta of the Senia-Shahajahanpur Gharana. Brandon has performed throughout India, Japan, Canada, and the United States. He has performed with Grammy nominated sitarist Gaurav Mazumdar, tabla virtuoso Yogesh Samsi and award winning kathak dancer Sujata Banerjee. He has a masters degree in Music Composition from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and is a visiting student at the ITC Sangeet Research Academy in Kolkata, India. Over the last decade he has spent many of those years of living in Kolkata studying in the traditional guru-shishya parampara approach to learning Indian classical music with his guru. He is now based in Seattle, but regularly
travels to India for performances and talim.

Seth Littlefield received his B.M. in percussion performance at Central Washington University where he studied with both Dr. Andrew Spencer and Garey Williams. Seth has won numerous soloist awards at festivals internationally and performed at both IAJE and MENC conventions. Seth has studied privately with Chuck Silverman, Raul "Lali" Brito, and Miguel Fernandez in Cuba and has performed at the University of Havana. Other teachers in the U.S. include: Mark Ivester, Steve Smith, and Steve Houghton. Seth has performed a variety of styles from jazz and hip-hop to Afro-Cuban and fusion. He also was the drummer for The Brandi Carlile Band.

Phil Georgas, described by a fellow musician as the primordial bass player, has been playing bass since the day he could lift one out of the case! His playing reflects a pure unconditional love and respect for low notes with influences that cover a wide spectrum, from rock/jazz and Latin fusion through all styles of pop and landing on straight ahead punk. Phil has shared the stage with The Ramones. Phil is also a blossoming sarod player who has traveled to India to study under the guidance of Pandit Buddhadev Das Gupta. In Anjuman Phil plays Latin bass patterns within the framework of North Indian Classical rhythmic cycles translating his knowledge of improvisation in raga to fretless bass.
