Concert with Shuji Yamamoto in Varanasi

On Saturday April 15th I performed with sarod player Shuji Yamamoto at the Raj English School in Pahariya, Varanasi. Shuji-san has been studying sarod for the last 20 years and has spent 10 months a year for the last 2 years in Delhi, studying with the great Ustad Amjad Ali Khan. Thanks to Bappa-da (Debabrata Bhattacharya) for organising this concert for us. Here are some newspaper clippings... The first headline reads "Foreign artists win children's hearts."
