Stern Grove - Bhangra, Irish Reels and a Musician in Kilt

*

Kailash Kher * Delhi 2 Dublin

It was a fun afternoon at Stern Grove on Sunday (August 2nd) when the Indian musician Kailash Kher and his group entertained a capacity crowd. Kher's Bollywood version of Sufi music is a far cry from the late maestro Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan but tunes were catchy. The audience loved it and there was good vibration -- a lot of dancing, clapping, and swaying to the music. The weather was just right. We took a picnic lunch and a bottle of red which added to the pleasure.

The Delhi to Dublin quintet performed before Kailash Kher appeared on stage, and did a great job of warming up the crowd. This group of fusion musicians from Vancouver, BC, lived up to the reputation.

Music.....it can lift your spirits, help you cope with the daily grind. It can make you tap your heels or get up and dance. It can also make you sad because a certain song can revive memories of a person or place that meant something special.
