Shen's News: It's the end of the month and that means it's time for Global Soul Music Vol 3 , this month featuring Tibet2Timbuk2 (Tenzin, Toothfaerie Marcello and myself) with guest artist, beautiful Indian vocalist Menaka Visvanathan. We had a very successful concert at BEMAC last Friday with guest Asim Gorashi (Sudan) - concert photos here. Unfortunately, it may possibly be the last ever BEMAC event, as BEMAC has lost important funding! Please write to the Queensland Premier to express your concern.
Taro Terahara's Dec 8 concert "Bamboo Bliss" is fast approaching. Seating is reserved so get in quickly to get the best seats. You can get tickets for Bamboo Bliss online at ethnosuperlounge.com, and in person at Core Yoga, The Forest and Shikara Design.
SPECIAL OFFER: For ESL email list members - tickets for Bamboo Bliss will be $1 off at Global Soul Music Vol 3 this Saturday night.
ESL Forum: STILL no response from my request for discussion on downloading music. How much would you pay to download a track by Tibet2Timbuk2? Or wouldn't you? If not, why not? Please share your opinion here: Price for downloading songs/CDs. Another post awaiting discussion: World fusion music (how to?)
And don't forget Shen's Best of the Web if you're looking for something to pass time online.
