Ranjit has recently finished recording an album with John Mclaughlin, and is a killer player who has worked as a drummer in New York as well. He has absorbed many styles, and brings a very interesting spicy curried flavor to the drums.

This clip unfortunately is a montage of many tunes, which blend into each other rather suddenly, but you'll get the idea.

It'll be great if you could let me know what you think.

thanks
