Just a few days before bansuri artist Kiran Hegde returned to India, Marie Saintonge organized one last concert, at an art gallery in Saint-Hyacinthe. The show was really well attended, and the gallery had quite an exceptional acoustic! Kiran and I were joined by special guest Ziya Tabassian, who is an excellent percussionist, specializing in Persian tombak. The trio format was a nice change of pace, and the tombak/frame drum and tabla work really well together!
It was sad to have Kiran leave, as it was a great two months of musical adventures together. Looking forward to his return to Canada next year!
