Carsten Wicke, German-born Rudra Veena player and filmmaker (Music Masala ), has been living in India for several years now. He is currently based in Calcutta and is dedicated to his mission of maturing into a concert level Rudra Veena performer. He also develops new Rudra Veenas in collaboration with local craftsmen, not least to counter the current shortage of instrument makers for Rudra Veenas.

Carsten has no time for new film documentaries, but he recently published a video blog. Originally recorded for an inner circle of friends, these videos give close insights into life in Calcutta. The latest contributions feature the recently held great festivities in honour of Goddess Durga on Durga Puja, the most important holiday in Bengal, and the festival of lights Diwali, one of the most popular holidays across India. The narration is in German, but the images often speak for themselves. There is also the opportunity to experience a Rudra Veena performance by Carsten. "
