A multifaceted artist, Jay's music is at once reflective of his devotion to his Guru, the inimitable legend of the bansuri, Pt Hariprasad Chaurasia, as well as a diverse range of other musical influences. From his formative years, Jay’s musical inclinations were not limited to that of the Indian sub-continent and he was also strongly drawn to the music of the African diaspora and American Jazz in particular. A recipient of the prestigious AIIS Performing Arts Fellowship, Jay maintains a busy schedule performing for audiences across the globe. He currently is based out of New York City, where he is very active as both a teacher and performer and also as a founding member of Brooklyn Raga Massive, a prominent musicians collective.
Ehren Hanson began learning tabla the moment it captured his imagination at age 15. His initial training was under Misha Masud of New York City and in the year 2000 travelled to India to begin a life of intense training with his Guru and living legend Pandit Anindo Chatterjee - a training which continues to present day. He has been acclaimed with the Times of India calling his solo performance, “enthralling”. In 2005 he received the prestigious “Senior Performing Arts Fellowship” from the American Institute of Indian Studies, in 2009 founded the Anindo Chatterjee School of Tabla (schooloftabla.com) in Brooklyn, NY and in 2012 he helped co-founded the artist collective Brooklyn Raga Massive (brooklynragamassive.com).
