New Sarod !

I just returned from India as the proud owner of a new sarod….

Sounds great so far….

Here’s me practicing my eternally favourite raga Darbari Kanada on my new sarod…., playing both a slow alaap as well as a fast paced composition in 16 beats to check out the sound….

Some moments from a recent concert

On 30th March 2014  I performed with the Preston Symphony Orchestra – a concerto for sarod and tabla – by Nicolas Buff, with Girish Makwana. This was a first in Australia- to have a full symphony orchestra with the sarod/tabla.

A gentleman from Taiwan who writes a blog took some photos of the rehearsals
