Raju Das Baul - lead vocals/khamak; Deo Ashis Mothey - vocals/guitar/dotora; Matt Keegan - sax/clarinet/harmonium; Steve Elphick - bass; Gaurab Chatterjee - dubki/drums

The Three Seas combine elements of Indian folk music with Western song form and production in a band full of engaging performers from India and Australia. Listeners can expect a soulful, soul-based repertoire with a diverse array of voices and unusual instruments.

Centre stage is the master folk singer, Raju Das Baul. His amazing stage presence, arresting voice and virtuosic khamak playing showcase the best of the Baul tradition. Deo Mothey brings his enigmatic style from he mountains in Darjeeling, while Kolkata-based rock drummer and dubki expert Gaurab Chatterjee (from the famous Bengali band Lakkhichhara) smoothly bridges musical cultures. From Australia, band-leader and saxophonist Matt Keegan and master bassist Steve Elphick complete the unique sound of the band.
