Hope you are having an good Summer.
It gives me tremendous pleasure to announce the Second Chhandayan All-night Concert of Indian Classical Music in Toronto, Canada.
It will be held at the St. Andrew's Church (next to Roy Thompson) on Saturday, September 24th from 8 pm until 5.30 am (Sunday, 25th).
This is the perfect way to spend a night. There is no fatigue, there is no discomfort. It is the most comforting and ecstatic experience you can ever imagine. Last year's concert is a witness to that. I know for sure that those of you who could come last year will certainly return. Please mark the date on your calendar and spread the word so that more people can benefit from such an opportunity of thoughtlessness, speechlessness and being spellbound by such a galaxy :
