Bells and Whistles

This is a recording I made in Sri Lanka during December 2014 whilst visiting a Hindu temple near Kandy.  The most enduring memory from this is the two musicians both sat on the floor, one skinny playing a drum and one very large playing a long wind instrument.  Whilst the acolytes on the stage poured milk and flower petals over a gold statue of Krishna, the large one kept winking and gesturing at the girls in the audience to come and sit next to him which they mostly declined but when one accepted his horn playing became extra exuberant.
