back intact from India

The India tour was a richly rewarding experience I had the opportunity to not only perform 6 concerts and record with some of the great musicians in Calcutta, but also conduct a 10 day world music synthesis course at the Rabindra Bharitya University with tabla wizard Abhijit Banerjee & Kenny Endo, Japanese American Taiko drummer. Each of us presented original compositions in the context of this crossover music workshop. The talented music students performed our pieces at the culminating concert incorporating harmony & counterpoint into a new piece based on Raga Charukeshi. I will post some video of this and other performances shortly and as well some audio excerpts from India.

Here's a link to the press from Telegraph newspaper in Calcutta.
