The Alchemy Festival 2013 is still going strong at the moment, and yesterday was the turn of maestro Hariharan, with Sivanmani on percussion, Bickram Ghosh on tabla & percussion, and Stephen Devassy on keyboards on stage at a packed out Royal Festival Hall.  Some of the songs performed yesterday included ‘Uyire‘ from the movie ‘Bombay‘ (highly recommended film to watch!); ‘Thamizha Thamizha‘; ‘Roja Jaaneman‘ from the film ‘Roja‘ (another classic and recommended viewing), and also Nila Kayhiradhu

Thought of the day

Gbogbo èèyàn oníwà tùtù kọ́ lonínúure.

In other words: It’s not everyone with quiet disposition that is kind natured. [Appearance can be deceptive]
