Recording Tantra~Mantra:We're up on Vancouver Island, Canada, recording a new album... quite unexpectedly, as our plans were to go on to Europe after our US/Canada/Mexico trip. But it all fell into place when we were here in Victoria for a concert in September and Miten was reunited with his old friend Joby Baker. Not only does Joby have a great studio in 10 acres of pristine forest, and is an incredibly inspired musician and record producer, he also had time free to work with us. So we do what we do - we said 'yes' and jumped!And we're very happy we did - the music is so beautiful. We've started to call him Dr. Joby because he understands the healing quality of our music and is helping us to create it on 'tape'. Our little sangha of Manose, Maneesh, Joby and the 2ofus are having the most inspirational time - and the music reflects that. Manose calls it Rasta Mantra - yes, we're in a reggae groove! Of course we cannot wait to share it with you!... so, as soon as we finish one of the trax you guys will be the first to hear it.

Bulgaria-Rain Gods, Romans and Earthquakes:
hi friendsplovdiv is a beautiful, ancient city, as our host, stanislav, pointed out as he took us on a short tour.
it is the cultural center of bulgaria, and its history spans 6,000 years.
according to wikipedia it is possibly europe's oldest city.
unfortunately time didn't allow us more than a couple of hours to explore.this photo was taken the morning after the earthquake that hit bulgaria shook our hotel like a plate of jelly.
it happened at 3 am, and deva and i were on the 5th floor, wondering if our time had come to join george harrison and john lennon.fortunately not.
the shaking eventually subsided as we hung on to each other and, like a mantra, it slowly disappeared back into the silence from where it had arisen.

Byron Bay/Brisbane:hi friends – i promised myself no more blogs – but can't resist sharing these pix.
they're from our first concert of the year, in byron bay.
we hired a great multi-media artist, named 'tone' (that's all i know – apart from the fact that he's 'japanese bharti's' boyfriend and has been for several years).
anyway, with the addition of maneesh de moor in the ranks, we decided to use the time down under to experiment.here's the result:Photos by Kamal and Esra
