Album Notes
From scorching rock-fueled dance numbers to aching ballads of loss and loneliness, Stranger Here Myself is the culmination of a deep affinity and collaboration between Boston's Phil Kaplan and some of New Delhi's finest contemporary popular musicians, spearheaded by Nikhil (a.k.a RED) Mawkin. Phil's sui generis songcraft combined with Mr. Mawkin's sharp producer's ears and a discerning ability to assemble top New Delhi talent have yielded a superbly sweet and sweetly superb bouquet of sonic flowers for the body, mind, and soul. The album features an unlikely yet compelling combination of Memphis-style back beats and Phil's ground-breaking guitar stylings performed on his own customized solid-body electric fretless "gui'tarode," which he developed after many years of study with Calcutta-based sarode master Sr. Puspen Dey (himself a senior disciple of the Pt. Buddhadev Dasgupta), and which he has specifically designed to emulate the classical sarode.
