Lured back onto Facebook and this Blog by the visit of an Indian Sitar player.
STOP PRESS NOTE: Dr Vishal is in Auckland FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS and still has spaces for performances on June 30th, July 1st and July 2nd, subject to transport. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me. derekc(at)tpp(dot)ac(dot)nz
AND we are interested in a few more schools completing the surveys to do with Vishal’s research.
Contact me as well.
Vishal is here for a couple of months on a research fellowship from UNESCO.
He has visited Christchurch and Greymouth doing some research towards his project and playing the sitar.
Remember the Beatles and Norwegian Wood??
As well as this he did a few short demonstration concerts. He is a remarkable performer, and I really enjoyed the short concerts I was able to attend. Plus we had a great time chit-chatting, thinking about a trip to India, sampling some local foods and walking.
