Indian Classics Tokyo 2011 - A first class Indian classical concert

My last concert of this year's Japan tour was a really first class event held in Densho Hall in Shibuya, bringing together some of the top Indian classical artists in Japan at the time.  The 9/11 event marked 6 months since the Fukushima tsunami and 10 years since the New York attacks.  The hall was packed full of attentive listeners creating a fantastic atmosphere for great music.  Many thanks to organiser Yuriko Terahara and congratulations on a great job for Indian music!  The after party was loads of fun too - the biggest I've ever been part of!

These photos were taken by Akiro Io and there are many more on his blog.
