Various concerts, Sep-Nov 2014

A brief summary of my concerts (and a recording) from just before Sangeet Mela 2014 until our second India trip of the year...

Around Sangeet Mela 2014, we had fantastic international musicians Sri Sangeet Mishra (sarangi) and Sri Govinda Chakraborty (tabla - my senior guru-bhai) here, so we had a couple of small concerts out of town featuring them, plus a few more concerts in the following weeks with Sangeet-ji as guest artist in Tibet2Timbuk2 and Spirit of Bhakti.  All awesome, what great musicians!

Govinda Chakraborty (tabla) and Sangeet Mishra (sarangi) playing together for the first time ever -  a totally awesome home concert.

Raga Shambhala tour in Lismore: Shen, Sangeet Mishra, Tenzin Choegyal
Plenty of Indian community events as usual...
Shen with Smt Shrabani Choudhury, 21/9/2014

My first performance on pakhawaj, accompanying Yuki at Sri Selva Vinayakar Temple in South Maclean for Navaratri.

Shen with Murali Ramakrishnan (bansuri), 12/10/2014

Shen with Dr Indranil Chatterjee, 12/10/2014
Indranil played a composition in Taal Pancham Sawari (15 beats) - very enjoyable!

Flying off to Sydney with Spirit of Bhakti - Shen, Menaka, Radha - just like a real professional band! :-)

Recording the new CD by Spirit of Bhakti with Radha Bornstein. (Marcello Milani running the recording in the background.)
