Delightful Music: Max ZT – Lauded as the “Jimi Hendrix of Hammered Dulcimer” by NPR, and “A Force of nature” Max ZT is an innovator of the instrument. Taking his roots from Irish and American folk music, Max has transplanted his compositional techniques to both Senegal, where he studied the Mandinko technique with the Cissoko griot family, and to India, where he received the prestigious AIIS grant to study under the great santoor master Pandit Shivkumar Sharma. His fresh perspective and bold experimentalism have been the backbone to beautiful, complex, and genuine compositions, while his unorthodox playing style has been a pioneering force in revolutionizing dulcimer techniques.
Delightful Cinema: “Black Friday” – Black Friday is a film about the investigations following the 1993 serial Bombay bomb blasts, told through the different stories of the people involved — police, conspirators, victims, middlemen. 2004, NR, Directed by Anurag Kashyap, 2 Hour 23 Minutes, India
