Three Interesting Video Clips




This unusual way of playing the guitar took me quite by surprise.
Erik Mongrain recorded two nice CD's called: Equilibrium and Fates.






This is a very mysterious video by Russian artist and musician
Vladiswar Nadishana whose music & website is quite inventive.






The Norwegian group Supersilent is headed by one of my favourite musicians,
Arve Henriksen (we are the selling two of his records at the Babaghuri shop and Onlineshop.
At first I thought the film was made in Russia after the second world war but in fact it shows the aftermath of the San Francisco earth quake in 1906.

Exhibition: 2011.6.16-20 Handiwork of India II, Padmaja Krishnan / Mura Collective




Photo by Isao Hashinoki


We are pleased to announce our latest exhibition,
"Handiwork of India II" featuring work by Padmaja Krishnan and the Mura Collective.

Designer Padmaja Krishnan’s work is characterized by her colourful kantha stitching
and her slightly mischievous sense of humour.
Her traditional kantha uses simple stitches
that form a series of patterns through layers of cloth,
achieving a three-dimensional feeling of light and shade.

From the Mura Collective of New Delhi,
we have collected a range of stoles, hand-woven and dyed
in a variety of indigo shibori patterns by the women of the collective.

We hope you will take this opportunity to come and see these contemporary Indian designs
that combine a deep respect for tradition with individual creativity.
This exhibition will be held from the 16th to the 20th of June.
