oMjA (Aug 01, 2003 08:23 a.m.): And how was the day rod?
It was really great. Lots of students(fully booked) . From begginers to advanced. I went there thinking that I would be playing but ended up helping. In the end there was a little performance at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and I have to say that some begginers did very very well.Was interesting to see that there was as many girls as boys.
For a moment I took my tabla to the Purcell Room stage and while playing a Kayda dreamt on that I was actually performing for an audience.....
