The Legend:
In India in 1886 a young man with tabla playing skills left the countryside for the city. He lived a pretense of royal stock and married into a maharaja family. At the sametime a young welshman had landed in India with his guitar and also lived a pretense life above his station. Likewise he married into a maharaja family.

For both this was short lived and in 1889 their true backgrounds were discovered. Both found themselves on the same boat heading to Great Britain. On this boat they met, and wrote a song together. This song was the Maharaja Blues and this is how the Maharaja Blues was born.

The Fact:
Maharaja Blues is the culmination of the flow of three talented rivers, Richard, Jonathan and Satinder as they merge with the great Mississippi, fusing the sound of the beating tabla with the euphoric slide blues and the fire of the harmonica. During 2011 the duo started to perform more frequently together and their sound was greatly received. They released an EP. This EP commemorates and celebrates the distinctive sound produced by the combination of the duo's rhythm and harmony, as well as the good times had during this period. In 2014 Jonathan became the third tributary to flow into the blues water of this musical river.

Richard Staines was born in South Wales. He has been actively involved in all sorts of music from a young age. He has lived and performed in many countries though has been mainly based in London and more recently Cardiff. In recent years his love of the blues has blossomed and his skills on slide guitar have gone from strength to strength. He thoroughly enjoys song-writing, arranging, and composing.

Satinder Grewal, having started playing tabla at the age of 9, continued with the passion for the Indian percussion instrument throughout his early years. He recently rediscovered his affinity for the tabla and has been playing at gigs around London, creating a respectable fan-base. He has transitioned from collaborating with traditional Indian musicians playing instruments such as sarangi, to western style instruments - notably the guitar. Through hours of enjoyable yet concentrated practise, he has honed his technical abilities which has allowed him to form half of the Maharaja Blues.

Jonathan Browning, born and raised in the valleys of South Wales, breathes fire through his harmonica adding extra spice to the Maharaja Blues. He combines folk, rock and blues techniques to create his own distinctive style. Enamoured by the versatility of his instrument, he naturally feeds off the vibes of the other maharajas.
