Here's the link to my pics pages of this year's Dhrupad Mela. I hope you can see them all.
See how many you can name before I put what captions I can on.

Dhrupad on santoor!

Dhrupad on banjo?

What is the world coming to?

Reassuring to see harmonium still has its proper place in its natural home though :twisted:

I know what you mean. The santoor was OK but the other Turkish Banjo thing was pushing it a bit. Still, if you can play in Pakhawaj beats with a Pakhawaj......

Forgot to say thanks for the pics. Thanks!
Made me regret not going this year. It was to late for me. Next year it's back in Feb, I see, so may be a chance of ragamala stumbling along the ghats and tripping on the Benares alley cowpats.

Interesting, thanks Nick.
It still bemuses me how that santoor got let in the door of a dhrupad mela!

Perhaps this was interval entertainment while the freaks chilled out on the terrace overlooking the smoke-hazed ganga?

I see Lakhan Lal Sahu has youtube vids posted under his own name. Story behind that? Trippy M, purveyor of quality videos to the profession.....

Talking of quality, the man who was walking backwards to and fro during your vids - I seem to recognise the arse from last year

Yes THAT silly arse is the photographer that hasn't the slightest F...g idea there's an audience watching & the artists are NOT there for HIS benefit alone. BERK!!!!
He even talked to me at the end about his constant wandering across everyone's recordings!!!

Sri Sahu requested a copy of his performance from me before I left on the second night. Are you saying he's posting copies of MY recording under his own name??? :twisted:

Good pics Nick. Is the pakhawaj player in the santoor photo Chitrangana Agle-Reshwal?
