The same day I meet S W Satyandra , sitar player from bombay who is currently in Adelaide as a tourist.An intersting jam on sitar and dhup but i missed the 'tihai" he played at the ending.It was a "chakardhar" tihai which I heard after a long time. He played the same thing again and this time we finished together..
I remember playing some Indian spritual songs with rinku but this was the first time I had to play them in a concert.In a way it was really funny playing "Govind Bolo Kabhi Gopal Bolo" but then I just got indulged with its groove and just forgot where and whom I was playing for.
He has given me 4 more dates to play and one of them is at Osho Ashram in Adelaide on 6 may'06.So be there if u live in adelaide..
