Radically multicultural and poly-stylistic, New York City's TriBeCaStan is one of contemporary music's most vibrantly eclectic ensembles, using diverse instruments from around the globe to create an exotic palette of sonic colors and melodies.

The New York Times describes TriBeCaStan's sound as "genre-bending jazz and world music," and The Washington Post hails them as "an international jazz and folk festival unto itself, fusing Balkan, Middle Eastern, Indian, Latin American, and African musical elements to bold and dazzling effect." According to The Village Voice the band embodies "New York cool, explorer energy, and outer space vibes."

One of the most sought after classical artistes currently in India, U Rajesh has played with nearly all of the top musical stars in both North and South India, and has recorded more than a dozen albums. Brother of the legendary Mandolin U. Srinivas, U Rajesh, has given concerts in Australia, the Middle-East, America and Europe.

He was the youngest participant of the Magic Mandolin Festival in Germany in the '80s, and is credited with a performance at the Lincoln Center. A performance in New York in 2006 was voted among the best concerts of the year by the New Yorker magazine. Rajesh was specially honored by the President of India in April 2007.

Amidst his increasingly busy schedule for concerts & collaborations with other talented artists, the mandolin star had a call from Maestro John McLaughlin to play for his album, Floating Point, which was nominated for a Grammy Award.
