hi shender bender! good on you my brother, you seem to be the only non-Indian performing at your guru's memorial service. i hope it goes beautifully.
i'm off to adelaide tomorrow morning for 5 nights of the adelaide festival/fringe and womadelaide. can't wait!
also, made an offer on the 'relic' space for a drum and dance school (corner vulture st and horan st, opposite west end primary school). shall see what transpires... fingers crossed.
love you bro,
