Here’s some lighter fare in lieu of some deeper discourse and new music news coming soon!
CIRCLE OF ABSTRACT RITUAL:
“This film took 300,000 photos, riots, wildfires, paintings in abandoned houses, two years and zero graphics to make. It changed my entire life.” – Jeff Frost
Master drummer, Nathu Solinky, plays Nagara, a type of paired kettle drums from Pushkar, India. Apparently “an indispensable component of any North Indian wedding”!
