Producer and multi-instrumentalist Karsh Kale performs his brainchild, Classical Science Fiction, breaking down the traditional constructs of Indian classical music while maintaining its emphasis on rhythm, scale, and improvisation. Karsh has put together an all-star ensemble of musicians who are rooted in traditional styles yet creating new paths in Indian classical, electronica, blues, jazz, rock, and ghazal.
Karsh is equally comfortable DJ-ing at the closing night of the Burning Man Festival as he is playing tabla with the late sarangi maestro Ustad Sultan Khan, rock icon Lenny Kravitz, or R&B songstress Alycia Keys. He is at home performing with his childhood hero Ustad Zakir Hussain, or as a member of the super group Tabla Beat Science, or orchestrating and composing for Bollywood films. He is considered by many as the face of the emerging independent music scene in India.
“Karsh Kale has established himself as a spokesman for a generation of music that incorporates electronica, dance grooves and classical Indian sound” SF Chronicle
