Stomu Yamash’ta is a long-time leading contemporary musician based in Kyoto, Japan. He worked with Seiji Ozawa, Steve Winwood, David Bowie, Toru Takemitsu and many other leading innovative musicians. Another musician in the picture Aurelio lives in Auroville, South India and runs a musical instrument making unit called Svaram. This encounter magically took place although two musicians were very busy as Stomu had plan to hold his concert in Daitokuji temple in Kyoto very soon and Aurelio had to trip back to India to prepare for the contemporary healing music congress in Europe. Our meeting were filled by sharing of ideas and creative enthusiasm.
