Tibet2Timbuk2 at Byron Community Centre

On Friday Dec 3rd Tibet2Timbuk2 had a concert at Byron Community Centre, with special guests Peter Hunt (trumpet) and Armando Ornano (bansuri). Yuki Taniguchi opened with some beautiful mantras, followed by bansuri alap by Armando and then a slow bhajan with tabla. Yuki had just arrived from Japan, and her flight was delayed so that rather than arriving in the morning and having a rest, she arrived just in time for soundcheck! Well done, Yuki!

Apart from a very small home concert in Ocean Shores in winter, this was our first proper show in Byron. I think we got a few more fans this time so hopefully we've got something to build on there now. The new songs, especially "Snow Lion" were absolutely beautiful, and Peter and Armando added some luscious textures on trumpet and bansuri.
