Music in London

I had the pleasure of visiting the Raj Academy of Sikh Music in Southall, London. Met their Principal, Dr. Surinder Singh, a wise and knowledgeable Musicologist. I listened to some soul stirring music in Raag Badhans (not far from Desh) in an orchestra by his students - Esraj, Sarangi, Dilruba and Sarinda. They really believe in bringing feelings out. I was very touched.

I shall be back in Feb to visit them again.
