One of the country’s finest ever guitar players has launched his second Instrumental album titled CONQUEROR. Chandresh Kudwa’s flying fingers have given birth to this latest album which has come out thanks to a very busy, fun and even traumatic last few months. The title track CONQUEROR is a rousing, anthemic song which is already one of the favorites at most of his gigs. While the quirkily named G-UKE song is a track where he strums on a "Ukulele" while running his fingers across the fret board of a Guitar!
Besides these tracks, one of the main highlights of the album remains Chandresh Kudwa’s collaborations with Swedish guitarist legend Mattias Eklundh on a track called the GOOD LIFE. The album also has a poignant touch with EDGE OF MY EMOTIONS written for his late father. ‘He was suffering from cancer and that song encapsulates what I felt at that point, but such experiences make us tougher and stronger, and I guess that’s how a CONQUEROR must be’ says Chandresh. CONQUEROR has been mastered by none other than three time Grammy winning engineer BobKatz. All the songs on the album have been composed, arranged, mixed and produced by Chandresh Kudwa. This one promises to keep the air guitarist in you going!
