I feel I must comment here to express my joy at having witnessed this remarkable event.

I had the pleasure of seeing Roopa Panesar perform here around the time of her first CD being produced – was it really two years ago? – and was heartily impressed.

Her performance today was frequently breathtaking and caused several very pleasant moments of tingles down my spine.

Of course, all of the artists were exemplary. There were moments during the second half of the performance when my delighted ears were struggling to work out what was happening to them, such was the fabulous interplay between the strings, all the while accompanied by the subtle hands of Upneet Singh.

My heartfelt thanks to all of the artists, and to Milapfest, for a fabulous performance.
