\'Strung Deep\' released .... Hi to the mysterious ether beyond immediate 'ken'. 'STRUNG DEEP' now released..... with Tabla given equal billing in the mix.... They have a parallel story to tell.... blessings to these deeply musical players. Recorded in Pune, India. A long time fishing... and now hoping to have caught something worth consuming. May it grow wings. What else to say. To the heart that beats, namaskar. Marcus Corbett   more
