Bhagwan Khalsa

Bassist Bhagwan Khalsa, one of the most sought-after acoustic bassists in the DC area, is currently a member of the Eric Byrd Trio. His original arrangements are essential to shaping the sound of the trio, and he has recorded on all of the trio’s albums.

With the Eric Byrd Trio, Khalsa has traveled extensively around the globe, performing and teaching music, and in 2001, the trio had the opportunity to travel under the auspices of the US State Department as Jazz Ambassadors. Since 2001, they’ve returned to Peru twice and Bolivia five times; they have performed at the Montreaux Jazz Festival and have toured in Estonia and the United Arab Emirates. The Eric Byrd Trio performed at the Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival in 2013 and is on the slate for 2014. They have appeared at the Friday night jazz program at Westminster Presbyterian Church in D.C. Khalsa also performs with Sharon Clark and Vince Evans at La Porta Italian restaurant in Alexandria, Virginia.
