Gifu Sangeet Mela videos and after-party

Here as promised are videos of this year's fantastic Gifu Sangeet Mela:

Following the event, musicians and volunteers had a few hours sleep, visited a local onsen (hot spring bath) and then enjoyed a little party together before heading home. I spent the following week with organiser Jimi-san and his guest from India Mata Prasad Mishra. Tokyo-based tabla player Dinesh Chandra also stayed for a couple of days and I learnt some nice things from both Mata-ji and Dinesh-ji.

The setting for the post-Mela party. Isn't Japanese nature beautiful?
