An amazing ability to improvise.
The best place to play for spontaneity is in a cafe, not on stage.
What does it mean to be a woman in Indian culture?

CAT 14 with Russian singing bells

On 21st April, in unity Pavillion last session of CAT14 was held and it was all about creating harmony. Russian Bells were used to demonstrate how harmony can be developed among various individuals and that too with minimal efforts, all you need is balancing between receiving and giving. Vera with her Russian bells showed us how with just a bit of practice the sound vibrations can be harmonised.
The 2 hour of ringing bells session was so soothing and relaxing, people meditated with the sounds. They shared the joy of sound and silence and to tune with others’ vibrations.
With the music, CAT 14 ended leaving everyone present there totally spaced out, still feeling the vibrations passing through them.
