About me: I have had an interest in music since my early teens, when I was introduced to his first drum kit (much to the dissatisfaction of my neighbours). While studying at NUI Galway I went on to explore different hand drums, particularly the djembe. I now have been studying the Indian tabla as my main instrument for many years. This study of world percussion has exposed me to the vast array of music cultures from around the world. I frequently get the opportunity to perform concerts of meditative music, as member of UK music group Ananda, international group Ashru Dhara and Gandharva Loka Orchestra.
Instruments played: Indian Tabla, Drumkit, Handpan, Bodhran, Harmonium, Djembe, Cajon, Kanjiri, Udu, Jews harp, Flutes and whistles, bit of Ukulele.
Favourite music: Meditation Music, North Indian Classical, Contemporary World
What i love about my job: Simply seeing the joy and inspiration that our store gives to our customers.
Things that make me happy: Meditation, Music and Running …the perfect trinity! I do a lot of running (2.50 marathon PB, 34min 10km PB), love nature and I enjoy travelling for concerts and for the Peace Run… an awesome initiative.
