Sanjay Sharma from Rikhi Ram: Indian musical instruments repair workshop

April 30, 2019

Last weekend, Sanjay Sharma from Rikhi Ram hold a repair workshop at my home in Medford.

This was a very succesfull opportunity to have our musical instruments fixed by a multi generation experienced luthier. I have learnt so much watching Sanjay work and he was very gracious answering my constant flow of questions regarding repairs. It was a treat spending three days together, share our meals, drink wine, laugh and talk about our shared passion. 

A flock of musicians stopped by to have their instruments fixed and I met a lot of people coming in and out. 

 Plume couldn't resist posing with us!
