Maharaja Blues is the culmination of the flow of three talented rivers, Richard, Jonathan and Satinder as they merge with the great Mississippi, fusing the sound of the beating tabla with the euphoric slide blues and the fire of the harmonica. During 2011 the duo started to perform more frequently together and their sound was greatly received. In 2014 Jonathan became the third tributary to flow into the blues water of this musical river.
Richard Staines is the guitar player and singer. His first album precedes Maharaja Blues and is a collection of his acoustic compositions.
