I was invited as featured artist on BBC/Medianetworks 94.3 Radio One on their Radio Show 'The Sunday Brunch' recently while on tour in Mumbai. Was a fun interview thanks to my host Mae whose intelligent questions and similiar cultural background made me feel very much at ease. Here's a link to the interview/live performance.
Time Out Delhi did an artice on me recently. Although the concert in Delhi had to be cancelled due to logistical complications, this was a really interesting to interview (courtesy Kingshuk Niyogy) which gave me a chance to address thoughts on issues I've wanted to share for a while, especially about being a bi-cultural artist based in Germany.

I just found out that I'm one of the thirteen nominees for the ''Bremer Jazzpreis 2012'', a National Award for artists in Germany for outstanding contributions in Jazz and Jazz-influenced music. This year's emphasis has been on ''Jazz with Ethnic Influences''.
My co-nominees are brilliant, hard-working artists, a couple of whom I've been a fan of for a while now. So I am honoured and humbled to be part of this and wish all of us the very best.
