The Deli Llama Orchestra plays Nepal

 

Nothing can prepare you for the sights, the sounds, the smells, the crowded, colorful chaos that is Kathmandu...

First LA, then Kathmandu

 

 

In addition to my own music, I'm privileged to play guitar with The Deli Llama Orchestra, a loosely confederated tribe of musicians from all over the States. We're headed to LA to play at the Vedanta Temple in Hollywood (pictured below). This is also a dress rehearsal for several gigs in Kathmandu, Nepal during the last two weeks of October. I'll be blogging about that and posting pix so please check back often.  Thanks for reading--
