Harry Payuta & Friends

GER | blues, rock, world music

An exciting stylistic mix of songs and instrumentals with guitar & sitar, and ... mostly it rocks!

After almost 10 years of musical activities in Central America and Spain, Harry Payuta is now back in Germany with a new album and new line-up.

The singer, guitarist and world-famous sitar player has teamed up with bassist/singer Ralf Marckardt and drummer Jens Kolweih to once again ignite the energy and authenticity of world music with the mentality of a singer-songwriter. (Press: SaitenKult 2022)

The current album Black Match ignites a brilliant 77-minute firework display from three creative decades of Harry Payuta's musical life.

His twelfth album looks back into the past to celebrate it in the present and point the way into the future.

The stylistic arc stretches from the 90s with his rock band Vee-Jays to his seven sitar albums and the singer-songwriter album Sweet Gloom (produced in Germany, El Salvador, Spain, 2003-2016) to new songs .

Payuta chooses to focus on either the guitar or the sitar. The sitar is electrified and used far from Indian clichés.

The current trio has rearranged and recorded all the songs. The result is an exciting combination of overlapping musical styles in a unifying, new band sound full of joy.
