Concert at Munna House

A couple of weeks back I was invited to play in a home concert at Munna House, my usual abode in previous years. This was a chance for some foreign students of music here in Varanasi to take the stage. We even had a sound system, although the power went out soon after Yohei and I started and came back halfway through Shivadhyanam's tabla solo. Next Friday (27th Feb) I'll be playing with santoor player Jimi Miyashita at another Munna House concert.

We went from Assi to Narad Ghat by boat
