Oops! I haven't posted in a while! Well, here's what's been going on:

I played a great show in January with Brett Saxon at Bar 4, which featured a collaboration with Angad Singh on a few tunes. Bar 4 has a REAL piano so my fingers were very, very happy.

I've also released a new bandcamp album you can download of a live recording from Spike Hill in July 2012. You can check it out and download it here.

That will be the last show I'll play before I travel to India for a theatre education project with girls.

In the meantime, I'm working on new songs, an instrumental/non-lyrical piece inspired by Indian Ragas and pentatonic melodies, using some weird (for Mela) time signatures, called Sarasvati. The goal is to make a home recording where I play all the instruments.

I'm also working on a few new songs in collaboration with Angad Singh. We're working out a piece where he taps on Matilda, my Marimachu. I'm still figuring out what lyrics and melody will be :)

There's a possibility I'll play a small set with Angad in New Delhi in March. Stay tuned for details!

I'm also developing a living room tour this summer in New York, Boston, San Francisco, Philly, and anywhere else that I can bring a bunch of people to a living room to hear my tunes! Let me know if you are interested.

Oh and hey! Follow me on twitter:
