Kapil Chetri
Kapil Chetri took to the guitar at an early age like most kids in the North East. “Being born and raised in Kohima, where guitar is kind of like a household thing, he grew up listening to blues legends like John Lee Hooker, Robert Cray, Muddy Waters, and B.B. King. Back in Nagaland, he used to play for Kohima-based rock n roll/blues band Heads and Tails, which played the first two editions of the Hornbill Festival.
Chetri, who is also part of Delhi-based blues band Big Bang Blues, has been performing solo since October 2013. As a solo artist, he primarily uses acoustic guitars and the slide in his sets. “I am not much into processors and other gadgets. I use both the glass and metal slide. Glass produces a warm and mellow tone, which a brass slide does not.”

He is also looking forward to release an EP by the end of 2014.
