Shen's News: Yes I'm back from 2 months in India! It was freezing cold almost the whole time I was there, but then I heard I missed some very hot days here - out of the frying pan and into the fridge... I've written a whole lot of blogs and posted a bunch of beautiful photos. All the blogs are listed individually below, or you can just visit my main blog page and skim through. And if you're on Facebook, all the photos are there too.
I actually came back a couple of weeks earlier than planned because I have a very special concert in Byron this Thursday with great kirtan singer, Jai Uttal, on his first visit to Australia. It's a great honour for me and I'm very much looking forward to it. At 4pm Saturday I'll also be playing with Tibet2Timbuk2 at QPAC in a free event featuring a whole bunch of great Brisbane Indian and Tibetan musicians.
Tibet2Timbuk2 news: Our CD "Music is Life" is now available for download in high quality format from the EthnoSuperLounge Shop. Proceeds go to support Tibetan Children's Village. If you've heard it and like it, please check out 20 easy ways to help Tibet2Timbuk2.
