Ross Hammond and Jay Nair


Ross Hammond and Jay Nair blend Indian Classical Music with American Roots and Blues music to make a sound all their own. 

Their record is "Songs of Universal Peace (2018 Prescott Recordings)."


"Drawing freely from Hindustani classical, delta blues and jazz without being bound by them, what’s noteworthy about Songs of Universal Peace is how naturally Hammond and Nair blend these traditions and depart from them." 
-Isaac Olson, Dusted Magazine 

"Today's recommendation...Spiritual music fusing the traditions of India and Appalachia..." 
-Ted Gioia 

"Prepare to be moved." 
-Alex Cline, percussionist 

"OK, it isn't jazz, but this might be the most beautiful thing I've heard this new millennium." 
-Mark Corroto, All About Jazz 

"There’s a meditative quality to the songs, which mix elements including raga, Americana and jazz." 
-Aaron Carnes, Sacramento Bee 

"...improvisational music influenced by Appalachian folk and Indian devotional musics." 
-The Union (Nevada County)
