The power trio, Catalpa, has been mesmerizing their audiences in Athens and Atlanta, Ga with unique soundscapes, arrangements and captivating melodies.

As a musical triad, Catalpa is a confluence of three unique individuals with diverse musical backgrounds: Joe Leone is the main composer on acoustic guitar; Souryadeep Bhattacharyya on sarod also composes; and Louis Romanos on a wide variety of ethnic hand percussion instruments. These three accomplished musicians came together and formed Catalpa out of their group, Gypsy At Heart, comprised of various artists on oud, cello, tabla, trumpet, double bass, violin, and drum kit.
