Prem Joshua and His Band in Penang
Prem Joshua is a multi talented musician. I watched him wide eyed, playing his flute, his saxophone and doing the vocals while playing his sitar all in the span of one song! There standing in front of the stage, trying to photograph him performing I was mesmerized beyond words! How effortlessly he handled the instruments while delivering flawless soothing music! He sang several songs that night; each of them vibrated with an energy that got the audience on its feet, swaying to his tunes.
During the press conference when he was asked why Indian music why not German, he replied he did not know the answer himself. After a pause he said “Probably I was born in India in my previous births!”.
I have a video clipping of one his songs. It is an ‘amateurish’ attempt, in fact my first one. Please excuse the goof ups particularly in the last part of the song. Watch him how he switches to different musical instruments. It is a 5 minutes video and may take some time to get downloaded completely meanwhile make yourself a cup of tea/coffee while it downloads so that you can listen uninterrupted.As you scroll down you will see the pics of other members of his band.
