Every year the tours are different. This is a good thing because it keeps things fresh and on the up-and-up. Nivedano certainly added spice this season, and together with Nirdosh, the two Brasilians gave the groove swing and a LOT of energy .
There are a million and one details that go into each year’s planning. I always experience a kind of disbelief when the music is finally happening, there are no bugs in the sound system, and the whole thing is rolling along. And roll it did for five consecutive, joyous weekends. I knew from the first notes in New York, this tour would be moving (grooving!) from peak to peak. It had that special something. I call it the wow! factor. Plain and simple, just wow!
