    This week I have been attending a workshop with a couple of musicians from the Bollywood Brass Band. I have never listened much to this kind of music -- I usually play big band jazz or my own bluesy stuff. But it was fun! I had heard that bhangra music used weird and unusual scales, but everything we played was in C major or D dorian.

    We hard a short performance at the Mela festival in Oslo today, and will have another one tomorrow.

    After spending the last year immersing myself in blues and jazz, I found it very refreshing to play in a new and unfamiliar genre. Anyone here with similiar experiences?
