Goa has long been a meeting (or is it clashing?) point of global cultures. At a home party in January 2012, these are the unusual sounds we came across at Stalin and Jessica's home. First, the rain-maker is a Malaysian thick yellow bamboo stalk, into which nails and pebbles are filled. Next come even more unusual sounds from across the globe... Stalin explains that the percussion instrument is a non-traditional one "invented" by some Swiss friends (and called a 'Harm'). Check the...

The memories and the pain of missing Goa. That's what spurred Ramesh Ghadi to keep writing his poetry, in the Konkani language (of Goa), when he was away from home for 16-years. In a free-wheeling chat, he recites and explains the context of his verse. His poetry deals with the changing Goa of the 1970s till date. Among his poems he recites * Te Dis (Those Days) * Paddeli (The Coconut Plucker) * Sobit Te Dis (The Village of the 1970s) * Chandanacho Haar (The Garland of Sandlewood) * Romibaba...
