Sanjay Sharma from Rikhi Ram: Indian musical instruments repair workshop
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!
