The Beat Root Blues Band / Bio

Pratish Motwane bluesman extraordinaire, formed the Beat Root Blues Band in 2004 to recreate the sound of music that influenced just about every major artiste in the world today. The band since then, has performed at live music venues all over the country and has been selected to perform alongside legends like Buddy Guy and Robert Cray at a major international blues festival in Mumbai slated for February 2011. The band went through several personnel changes over the years with Prat's rock solid harp and vocals being the central force around which the band evolved.

After years of being on the road belting out all forms of the blues, Pratish decided it was time to create his own signature sound of the blues. He got in touch with the band's former bassman Colin D'Cruz who is now a music producer based in Goa. Colin suggested adding Dave Kelly a smoking blues guitarist from the UK, currently based in Goa, to the lineup that included veteran Mumbai based drummer Claude Abranches. Things just kept falling into place from then on. A villa in Sangolda will serve as the rehearsal/jam pad for the four musicians who will use Goa's inspiring environment over the next three months to create an exciting new 'Indian' sound of the blues!
