New experience

Today I got the opportunity to do something very exhilarating.  My cousin brother has got a santoor for himself, and he very kindly allowed me to get a feel of it this evening.  :)

You can see and hear the result of this on my blog.

Here on your right in the sidebar adjoining this post, you will see a new orange colored  caricature sitting with a cello in his hand. This person from esnips will play a recording of my very small experiment with the santoor.

I have never played a musical instrument before, and I must say that it is truly a very exhilarating experience to be able to feel the music in your hands.  And the santoor is such a great instrument, it makes my not even amateur notes sound so real and mature.  I am filled with modesty at this moment of my writing this post, there is so much to learn, experience and enjoy in this world.

Truly beautiful and elevating. Santoor.
And all the best to my brother. May you experience and enjoy the music and the santoor. :)
