For nearly 25 years, Acoustic Alchemy has pushed the limits of the acoustic guitar's potential by embracing a spectrum of musical styles ranging from straightahead jazz to folk to rock to world music and beyond. In the two and a half decades since their earliest recordings - despite a tragic setback in the late 1990s and the inherent challenges of the 21st century music industry - the group has assembled and sustained a vast and loyal following that stretches well beyond their U.K. origins.

Natraj - Featuring special guest Indian classical violin master K. V. S. Vinay

“Natraj… A true fusion of jazz and world musics… A compelling blend of Indian, African, and Jazz musics… Excellent tunes… It all works quite beautifully.” raves Cadence Magazine. From Boston to Toronto, and Mumbai to Ghana, Natraj has delighted listeners since 1987. Acclaimed as Boston’s Best Jazz Band by the Improper Bostonian, Natraj seamlessly melds the classical music of India and traditional music of West African with contemporary jazz, creating its own infectious style.
