Hello, I'm new here and I'm glad I found this wonderful board. I've always had a sitar around. After years of owning low grade crappy sitars ( I never knew nice ones existed ) I just purchased a Mangla Prasad Sharma" from Buckingham, the rose petal tun model.I have not recieved the MPS as of yet it is in transit, but I can hardly sit still for one minute waiting for it to arrive. Well I look foward to participate in your discussions here and hope to contribute anything I can. Cheers

Wow, Monk. I really thought you knew by now! See the second page to the Attention Mangla Culture Club thread. Our friend Peter passed away about 6 weeks ago.

Anybody in my area (Southern New Jersey) Atlantic county, into sitar or Indian music in general ? It seems like I am the only person in the Pine Barrens here interested in this sort of stuff. If anyone is curious about the Pine Barrens (south NJ) I'd be glad to send you some info. Southern New Jersey is nothing like North Jersey. They should be two seperate states in my opinion.Have a great day

Hi Jeff. Know what you mean. The southwest where I am is not a good place either. I think there are a number of us in that isolated position. Hey, yahoo has a sitar club that I occasionally surf. Many of the folks on there are in the New England area, some from N.J. I see. So, maybe surf over there sometime and ask about local players. Good chance you'll hook up with somebody!

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sitar/

Their archives go back to August 1999. Easy to sign up and post to, or just read thru. Lots of pop-up advertisements is the only problem with their board. Nice to not have that on this one.

Hello, I got my Mangla rose petal today. And it SUCKS!! No just kidding, this sitar is one of the most beautiful instruments I have ever seen and I have owned a lot of instruments. My other sitar compared to the Mangla is a total piece of junk The servive from Buckingham was top notch and they answered all my questions with patience and knowledge. I love the case also. I wish I had bought this a year ago. Well see-ya

Thanks Russ, I checked out the Yahoo sitar forum, But I think this one is better. To much bull $#!t going on over there at YooHoo.Have you checked out RagaNet? Thats a good sitar page, its not a forum but a lot of good info.
Russ
Re:New guy here Aug 30, 2002 10:10 a.m.


Hi Jeff;
Yeah, RagaNet used to be my old "surfing site", long before this forum existed. But Ashwin B. hasn't updated his lesson section in over 3 years, so I don't go there much anymore. He tells me he's too busy with other things to keep it up...Yes this forum is better than YaaHoooo. Just an alternative.

Hello, Just wanted to say I just attended a sarode concert this evening outside of Trenton NJ. The sarodeist was Arnab Chakrabarty and on tabla was Mayookh Bhaumik. Arnab is only 23 years old and Mayookh is around the same age, and man did they play ! The show was held in the basement of someones home and about 30 people showed up. Everyone was friendly and a good time was had by all. And now that I heard a tanpura machine "they didnt have a person playing one" I am going to gei one to practice along with. Well I thought I'd let you know what I did tonight, thats it for now

Hi Jeff.........yep, nothing like a good concert to make your weekend! I talk with Arnab via email sometimes and he may contribute some articles to the website I'm doing......seems to really know his stuff. Hey, I had some stuff for you via email to help with your sitar studies.....did I send it? Can't remember......must be getting old!
