Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya : Sanjay Agarwal

There is a delicacy in his playing. He always prefers to be perfect. Sometimes I wonder how such a busy person takes out time to learn and practice hard songs. Sanjay is a C.A.

Jago mohan pyare... Sanjay Agarwal

Our friend Sanjay Agarwal plays this song beautifully well. When he visited us, I recorded this song, but this recording is much better which he sent to me on a cd prepared at his home.
Very shortly we are going to perfoarm on one stage. I am inviting him to be a part of our next programme.
Harmonica Club of Gujarat will perform on the 28th of August in an old age home known as 'PANKHAR ni Haash', in Nadiad with players from Vadodara also.


Invitation is given to all those, who want to be part of this noble cause...

Our Inspiration : John and Ann







'Hello Tapan,
Thank you for your email. It sounds you and your harmonica club are doing a good job. Entertaining under privileged people in your town. We find it very rewarding, making music that everybody knows and can relate to. Even people who have dementia can recognise the old familiar tunes. We often see patients in their bed, moving their fingers in time with the rhythm. Or people in wheel chairs tapping their feet, also keeping time.
Your request about videos. I am very sorry, but we do not have any videos of our performances. I did make some photos now and then. Here are a few of the latest ones.
We wish you all the best with your group.
Happy Harping and best wishes from Ann and John'

This is an inspiration to all of us. Dear friends, when there is a will there is a way.
Look at the group with this lovely couple playing harmonicas and other musical instruments for the, patients and others.
Friends, let us all congratulate and wish them a very very long, healthy and happy life.
