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!
