We didn’t experience any!! But it is funny to see how curious people are when people try and fathom out where our little family is from. They look at Shaff and say 'You look like an Indian, but are you an Indian?” (pointing at our children and giving Lou a once over glance). They ...
... of that before, on this special 'inheritance' !? ). A few years later a Tamil boy always helped me in repairing instruments which had been damaged in my work as a theater musician for a foremost Indian contemporary troupe, and due to large unemployment of our local youth we started then in 2003 the work of SVARAM.Due to the grassroots base of the project and starting off without any formal guidance it took us all these years to create the first simple base of ...
