That guy sure has some jazz hands.. lol.

The Speaking Hand documentary was incredible Abe. Thank you for that.

Back in the 80's there was a series of movies that carried alot of Indian music in thier soundtracks. Ghandi, A Passage To India, Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom just to name a few.. That was the first time I was exposed to Indian music and I was fascinated by it becuase it was completely alien and it truly had a sound all its own.

At that time also I was introduced to the different types of instruments used as well. When you said "Indian Music is a horse of a different bird" that is the best way to describe it.

I'm not up to date on any of the Indian musicians out there so I thank you for this.
