Shen's News: Happy New Year! I hope you're all well and have survived the floods without too many losses - and if you have, please accept my sincere sympathy. I've been busy over Christmas with a family trip in Victoria, followed by the muddy Woodford Folk Festival, where my tabla group Tabla Tarrango and Tibet2Timbuk2 both performed and made some good connections. Please have a look at the video of Tabla Tarrango's show. Since last writing, I've also posted blogs about Tibet2Timbuk2 at Byron Community Centre on Dec 3 and Yuki's Nada Yoga workshop in West End the following day.
Bansuri whiz Taro Terahara is coming to our shows this Friday and we have a few very special concerts coming up. First up this Saturday you can catch his Indian classical raga performances at Garden City Library. Next weekend we're heading to Wauchope (central NSW) and then back for an Intimate Indian Monsoon acoustic concert with special guests Tibet2Timbuk2 on Sunday in Byron.
Feb 3-5 is the main event: Festival of Tibet. Tibet2Timbuk2 and Taro will be performing at the Tibet - Awakened Heart concert on Sat Feb 5. The flood has hit the festival in that all the posters and postcards were lost, so please spread the word by forwarding this email, and also by printing out and putting up some festival posters.
