Blackstratblues is a mainly instrumental project by Warren Mendonsa. Warren spent his first 25 years in Mumbai, India. Between 1998 and 2004 he played guitar with Zero. He also recorded a few instrumental tunes which found their way to www.soundclick.com/blackstratblues
Warren moved to Auckland, New Zealand on his 25th birthday. He recorded and released the first Blackstratblues album Nights In Shining Karma (NSIK) in mid 2005, which is available for free download at www.blackstratblues.com.
Working from New Zealand, Warren has released his second album on 15 December 2009 - The New Album, which is up for download on the Blackstratblues website. While the second album doesn't have as much instant appeal as NSIK did, it grows on the listener. This album has more of a languid post rock feel to it with solos going over slow rhythym. Vocals and live drums and bass have been included in this album.
