A taste of India, Jamaica, and local jazz history

Hey Music Lovers!

Some slightly different types of stuff up tonight and this weekend. I’ll be at the Bollywood show and then probably head over to the reggae show tonight. These Bollywood revues are great shows, and for $6 extra you also get a plate of Indian food! So do a little world traveling in your own back yard and check it out. Be forewarned: it’s an early show at 5:30pm. Then you can still go out and hit the bars later.

The Yoginis are working behind the scenes to get our CD out next month (finally) and then I’ll be globetrotting to India and Philippines again in Jan/Feb 2006 where we’ll be recording some new Yoginis Jazz/Indian fusion originals for later release. We’ll keep you posted. I will be playing in December again before I go, so more on that later.

Here’s what’s hot this week:
