It was amazing to watch and listen to these young performers sitting on the pavement of Calcutta ; lost in their music ...against the backdrop of paintings or photographs hanging from dilapidated walls and oblivious of the passers-by.
( From L to R ) Jeannette from USA on ektara, Marie from France on flute and Reshmi from India on ektara. P.S. Ektara literally means ek = one and tara = string ie a musical instrument with one string. This is an instrument used by wandering bards or minstrels of Bengal.
In an old homestead, in the middle of nowhere, in the Northern Territory in Australia, I found this old piano. It sounded terrible, due to the hot weather and the fact that nobody played it anymore, but it made me feel at home.
Taken when I was in Uganda for work. A rural school had just received a donation of musical instruments and the kids loved the xylophone.
A government sponsored musician strikes up a tune in the entrance chowk to Jaisalmer Fort. Sure, he was doing it for the benjamins (baksheesh benjamins?), but he was engaging, friendly, and he knew what he was doing with his chunk of wood. Good on him.
At an international gathering in Colombo, Sri Lanka. Wish you could hear the music! Because I was sitting on the stage, I was able to photograph this beauty up close. It's one of those "Did I really take this photo?" moments.
