Shen's News: Well, Tenzin has come and gone and Japan will never be the same again. :-) Slight exaggeration, but we had a really great time and he made a huge impression on everyone who came to our shows. It was a really great experience for me to be play with Tenzin almost every day for a week, and along with bansuri player Taro Terahara we developed a really tight act. As usual I'm a bit slow on the blogs, but in the meantime you can see "Tenzin in Japan" photos on Facebook.
I have one more round of shows in Tokyo this week, and then it's back home in time for Qld Multicultural Festival on Oct 18, where I'll be playing with Tibet2Timbuk2, Saikat Bhattacharya and possibly another show yet to be confirmed. The following weekend I'll be accompanying brilliant Indian classical vocal/sitar duo Debapriya/Samanwaya in Bangalow on the 23rd. My arrangements for concerts on the 24th and 25th have fallen through, so I'm looking for home concert venues on those dates. Please contact me if you have any ideas.
