    Bolly good, Bollywood. Not quite as good as Stanley Clarke.

        She's pretty good. I enjoyed all the musicians in the second vid. Thanks for sharing.

          Thanks for the clip: there some great musicians out there.

          Also check out Tal Wikenfield (sp?), who used to play with Jeff Beck: similar style but very solid, too, a great player.

            Yes, I have been a fan of hers for a while. But can she sing and write like Les Claypool? (Some satire on the vocal 'skills' of Mr. Claypool. But I love some of his songs, pretty funny and thoughtful words).

            Back to Ms. Dey, here is another video showing her skills: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDO8X7E6pXM

              Here is another with the great Guthrie Govan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yacr_HQIbhU
              The female drummer here is pretty good too. But Steve Via is a much over-rated player, IMHO.

                That was nuts, thanks! I can't say I've ever been exposed to Indian funk jazz of whatever variety that is. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

                  Wow she's channeling her inner Gary Willis in that second vid - this is great stuff, thanks for that share.

                    RE: Gary Willis - He uploaded this:

                    Mohini grew up listening to jazz fusion bands and artists such as Weather Report, Jaco Pastorius, Yellowjackets and Miles Davis.

                    Background: I came across her in a search for Harpejji players. First I found A.R. Rahman* who asked Mohini to join his band:
                    “He told me that he was trying to get Tal Wilkenfeld for his band but after he heard me perform, he had to choose me,” Mohini said. “That was a big compliment.”
                    Mohini has explored genres - traditional music from India, and more recently a collaboration with the Heavy Metal band Underside
