On 9 July we had our customary Guru Purnima Maharishi Gandharva Veda concert at the TheaterHotel Oranjerie, Roermond.


Caspar Jung presented the musicians to an almost full concert hall.

First, Reeshma Shrivastava performed Raga Charukeshi on the sitar. She was accompanied by Sandeep Bhattacharya on tabla.
