A few recordings made at the beautiful outdoor setting of Nrityagram (Dance Village) just North of Bangalore, India, on August 10, 2019. The steel string guitar was provided by Debadarshini Samantaray, and the recordings were made by Shwetha Shetty, both doctoral students at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore.

Here are a few recordings of songs played on a nylon string guitar during a music presentation at the University of Antwerp on June 13, 2019.
