Celebrating Kolkata

Indian Tabla Guru Suranjana Ghohs invited myself and some musicians from INFI to come for a tour in her hometown, Kolkata, India.

We created a program of our original compositions and north-indian traditional music and went on tour. We played concerts in cultural centers, a Rumi festival and womens colleges. We held a benefit concert for the NGO Riti for a Smile – a school that offers women education for free. They greeted us with a shower of flower petals while playing conchs and a fire ceremony as we entered the stage – what an experience!

After the tour we went to Indian Pop Star Usha Uthup’s studio Good Vibrations and recorded the material.
