January 2002 I started my second trip to India/Goa for a period of three months. This time it was quiet comfortable to "dive" in, in this total different culture.
Immediately after arriving there, I started again lessons on pakhawaj with my friend and teacher Gajanan Amonkar. He taught me a lot of new Indian Rhythms (Bols) and we showed up together in some interesting concerts.
Aside of that I have had enough time to do my yoga and I have written the tunes for my next CD Raviindra "Songs of Devotion".
After these three months of activity and inspiration I went on my trip back home again. Gajanan and Manab Das (Sitar) promised me to come for a visit to germany in may. For that time we are already planing concerts and the making of their overdubs for the CD Raviindra "GOA".
2002 Raviindra meets India - India meets Raviindra
And it becomes reality - in may Gaju and Manab have arrived at my hometown in germany: we have had two wonderful weeks of music and fun together.
2003 CD Release Raviindra "GOA" and " The 30-years-on-stage-jubilee"
.... with Nani Tschauner (Vocals), Bernhard Faltermeier (Sitar, Tabla), Andieh Merk (Sax, Tabla), Berthold Reusch (Guitar), Rishi (Vocals, Guitar), Peter Stein (Gongs), Uli Stöckle (Sound Engineering) and the Bhajan-Group Shivaya.
January 2004 my next trip to India/Goa started. This journey should have some real positive, unexpected surprises for me. Like always in India I got my time to compose all new songs for my 4th CD Raviindra "Bharata". Together with my indian musicfriends we made the presentation of my CD Raviindra "GOA" in the capitol of Goa, Panaji. And last but not least "Angel-Records" offered me a record deal for 5 years, that gives the posibility to me, to work creative in India for the next years. This time the gods have been very kind to me again. Om Shanti. Jai Ganesh.
