Manosh BardhanPondicherry, India
About this artistThis charismatic Indian tabla player knows what he's doing. He taught us the Indian hospitality by offering his home in exchange for some good fun. Musicjams, Whiskey and lot's of laughter were the fruits of our passions. However, Manosh is not just joking around. When it comes down to music Manosh is a very dedicated player. The way he talks about that wonderful Indian instrument really illustrates his passion for it. We've treasured his Wednesday night jam with Basab (to be seen in Incredible India). Besides his passion for music he also spends a lot of time dealing with our environmental challenge. One of his activities is the electric auto-rickshaw business he runs. Auto-rickshaws have become a serious problem in India. According to "Scientific American" this smog-spewing machine coughs up roughly 13 times more lung-damaging particulates than other engine types. Imagine how many of them are driving around on our planet. You're doing important work Manosh. We are lucky to have met you.
