In a symbolic sense I see Auroville as a hybrid seed issued from hundreds of years of man’s spiritual history.

As a collective, Auroville functions in a most unconventional way that encourages each individual to discover his/her own path of realisation, beyond religious and cultural differences which one must inevitably learn to leave behind. 

Auroville , India , the world…, these three cannot be disassociated.

As a musician it came naturally to me to study some of the facets of Indian culture and its music which I love.

My music may be an Indian and Western blend but it seems to me that it is the  natural outcome of my life here.

For me,  the most beautiful music is the sound of nature.
