Album Notes
Touring up and down the East coast of Australia, they came to tell it all... A twisted tale of Celtic Blues Swing Bluegrass Jazz Indian adventure. The roads and flights between Kenya and Calcutta, London, Vancouver, LA & Oz weaved soaring nights of music, song and story between Josh Bennett, Parvyn Singh & Andrew Clermont. And now they've recorded it, crossing genres and pushing boundaries, capturing the virtuosic playing, the vocal harmonies and the joy of playing that have made the group's live shows so popular.

"Jeff Beck meets Ravi Shankar on the set of 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?' while dancing in Rio"

So who is BluGuru?

Parvyn Singh
Parvyn Kaur Singh was introduced to world music from a very young age and has been performing on stage with her father's group Dya Singh since she was five. She's performed at festivals and concert venues across Australia, USA, Canada, UK, Japan, Germany, Singapore, Malaysia and India. She also had a keen interest in western jazz singing and was instructed by Adelaide vocal teacher Danny Helps. Parvyn has also been trained in North Indian Classical vocal and dance, attending both the Saptak School of Music and Kadamb Dance Academy in Ahmedabad, India. She regularly visits Ahmedabad to continue learning from her teachers Smt. Sandhya Desai and Shri Vikhas Parikh.
Parvyn's strength lies in her ability to sing using both her Western and Eastern vocal training in a beautiful blend and balance. She can sing in many different languages such as Hindi, Punjabi, English, Portuguese, Malay, French, Italian and Arabic and has a vast knowledge of classical and folk ragas (melodies) and rhythms.

Andrew Clermont -
Vocals, Guitar, Mandola, Mandolin, Fiddle, Didgeridoo
Andrew has finally settled down, nestled in 6 (or so) bands / 5 or 6 instruments appearing in Austria/ Kenya/ USA/ Canada/UK/ Germany/ Taiwan/ Malaysia/ Hong Kong/ Singapore/New Zealand/ and Australia wide! Pumpkin powered in Totally Gourdgeous (Voted Best Live Folk Band '08); 3 time Bluegrass National Guitar Champ; flying with the Fiddlers Feast; very Australian as Terra Australis (Heritage Award & BushBand winners); and Celtic Conundrums - to be sure, to be sure! Andrew initiated the NoHoldsBarred Fiddle Contest and is a Director to the Golden Fiddle Awards. These are both sponsored by Epoch Violins with Andrew touring the unique 5-string models while also sponsored/ assisted by Maton Guitars, Gilchrist Mandolins and White Swallow Banjos.

Josh Bennett
Vocals, Acoustic and Electric Guitar, Sitar, Tabla, Dilruba
Fresh from a rocking opening act for Jeff Beck in Adelaide and a sitar concert for Ravi Shankar at his home in Delhi, India, Josh is back on tour in Australia, crossing genres faster than you can say "but weren't you playing tabla yesterday on stage 2?" Whether picking up a storm with The Lawnmowers, exploring Indian raga with Dya Singh and The Silk Road Project, or taking music to the edge with Guitar Safari, Jaib Mai and the Supper Club, Josh has a unique musical story to tell. Key ingredients in this melting pot are Blues, Jazz, Celtic, Bluegrass, African, and classical training on Sitar in India (Josh is a disciple of Smt. Manju Mehta, who in turn is a senior disciple of Pt. Ravi Shankar). Josh has toured Australia-wide, and extensively in the USA, Canada, UK and India, plus shows in Kenya, Malaysia and Thailand. The "Big'uns" are the California World Music Festival, Chicago World Music Festival, Womadelaide, Adelaide International Guitar Festival (invited back this year), Saptak Indian Classical Music Festival (invited back in Jan 2010), and opening acts for Jeff Beck, Anoushka Shankar, and Bob Brozman.
