Collaborations

This video was made by the talented and lovely A&Y to document the artist residency of the International Rollercoaster Club that I organised at Uttarayan Art Centre in Baroda, India with my talented artist friends and colleagues from India, Japan, Austria and Spain - we shared an electric month of creating and sharing ideas together and Alber and Yago created this beautiful video capturing the energy of us all together working away. Also check out this little post about our residency by my friend and the amazing artist Iria Do Castello.

A lifelong student

Music

I'm very lucky to have a handful of dear friends in Delhi who are incredibly talented musicians and wonderful chefs,  which naturally makes for a great weekend plan!

We are  Ikigai . We make music mostly on the weekends as we work on weekdays on art, design, film, photography, engineering and other varied professions. Here are some rough recordings - more in the works.

Jamming at home with my Uncle Rahul Sharma, who was visiting us from Chicago. This is the first time we met! He's a legend of a man. He is a psychologist by day and sitar maestro and bass guitarist band with his Chicago based band Funkadesi by night.
