This fusion piece was composed in collaboration with Peter Rand (Keys), Saranya Varma (Vocals), Nicola Offidani (Guitar), Raul Rodriguez (Drums), and Rob Glass (Bass).  Thanks for listening, liking, and sharing!
I just realized ... Since I started putting videos on youtube, more than one-million minutes have been watched on my channel.  I don't know most of the people who listen to my music but I am very grateful for their love and inspiration.    


I don't put a lot of my music on YouTube because frankly it is easier to just publish music without videos.  But among the ones that I have posted, these are my favorite:






The Words

Charan Kamal Prabh Kay Nit Dhiayaon
Kavan sumat jit preetam paon

Kavan Sanjog milaon prabh apnay
Pal pal nimakh sadaa har japnay

Aisi kirpa kart parch mercy
Har Nanak bisar na kahoo beray

Translation 

I meditate continually on the lotus feet of love.
What wisdom will lead me to attain my love?

What blessed destiny will lead me to meet my love?
Each and every moment meditate on love.

Bless me with such mercy my love
that I may never ever forget you.
