In a couple of hours I set out on the longest and possibly the most interesting trip I have been on yet! I am going to be traveling with ‘The Raghu Dixit Project‘ on a 7 city tour of the North East of India as part of the Roots Music Festival. We are traveling with 4 other bands, Too Late Lucy from the UK, Dub LFO from Israel and 2 musicians from the North East, Guru Rewben Mahsanghwa and Warklung.

It has always been my dream to travel to the North East, right from when Sashi in college described the place to me. This is one trip I shall not want to miss for the world!
I shall do my best to keep in touch, but expect me to pop up at the most inappropriate times! … So wish me luck and I shall miss a lot but I hope I will be able to catch up and more importantly .. regale you with stories from the North East!
