Shen's News: Last weekend I performed in the opening event of Brisbane Music Circle, an informal organisation fostering Indian classical music by amateur and professional artists. I accompanied Carnatic singer Divyasri Shashidhar and closed the night with a short tabla solo.
This weekend I'll be playing with Tibet2Timbuk2 bandmate Marcello at Sing It Up For Sabina!, also featuring Spankinhide, Lansana Camara, Mbira Myoyo, and many more. Marcello and I will be leading a finale jam session featuring the day's artists. The event is "a fundraiser to support the Food and Water Security
Project at Sabina Primary School and Orphanage in Southern Uganda where a permaculture design is
being implemented to produce food and fuel for the 300 children living onsite."
