Well Tainan there you have it, my first Taiwanese performance, done! Molto, molto grazie to everyone who came along. It was truly a surreal night on that rooftop: the street noise, temple chanting, amped children running amok and garbage trucks mixing together with the live performance. Tainan is a magical city!

I have to firstly thank Svaraveena (Get Svaraveena’s “Honeycomb life” album on iTunes) for the opportunity to team up and finally play live! Wow!
