Tarun Nayar is doing some very cool intercultural events
around Vancouver. He's keeping his ears about town – I bumped
into him last week at the
Alliance Francaise de Vancouver sponsored Pandit Vithal Rao and his
student Kiran Ahluwalia.
Beats Without Borders is now a “happening” group with violinist Kytami, dj's, bhangra dancers + musical guests.
Here's Tarun's message:
the BWB crew in celebrating 2 years of global fusion madness! With
guest DJ and producer Jacob Cino, electric violinist Kytami, local
hip-hop/bhangra crew BPM, the United Bhangra dance crew, and BWB
resident DJs. Another rocking party at the Red Room :o)
be joining my longtime music partner, gypsy guitarist Ivan Tucakov, for
an evening of Indian. flamenco, and middle-eastern sounds at one of the
most beautiful spaces in town. Come by, eat some great food and relax!
