i think the playa needs chai, and auto-rikshaws, and maybe a burning ghat...

to not forget the indian wiggle (the shake of the head in a left to right movement, done with a big smile) which meaning is always unsure, can be yes, can be no. But at least there is a smile involved. And it tells stressed out westerners demanding a clear answer: take it easy!

But i prefer non polluting rickshaws (the pulled ones) or cycle rickshaws!

I know some Paiutes that came last year.
But they didn't really understand how it all worked.

Depending on what you mean by 'real' Indian...

I've camped with an asian Indian fellow each and every of my 7 burns - he and I started our own theme camp last year inside Silicon Village.

Another Indian friend of his got married on the playa last year, 'traditional-ish' Hindu wedding, broadcast on Current TV:

I had an interesting walk with one who was from Seattle last year. The bells on his ankles were very soothing among the chaos.

A yearly phenomenon, LilBuddha. Even as the geese flying east for the spring. The ginger cuts through the dust most handily.

Indian Music

Post by Eric2 » Thu Jun 12, 2008 9:49 am

If anyone wants to do any Indian music and can sing or has instruments, give me a shout. (Coming from UK so can't bring my own gear.) I can keep reasonable tal and will bring some manjeeras. Can do a passable tintaal and a few other tals on tabla. Can tune tablas and pakhawaj. Love to learn from pros and share what they have shown me with non-pros.

Classical or make-it-up-yourself pagan variants all in my repertoire.

Anything Indian: music, dance or other stuff - I want to be there.

I'm well out of practice and need get back in gear.

Best

Eric

Oooh! A playa tandoor would be most excellent!
I may try to do my version of tandoori chicken at the very least.
