Jeff Greene play Afghan Rebab Ananta Govinda playing Chromatic Tamborine

I first met Jeff Greene with John Kruth a little while back and we went out to a funky musical instrument store in the Village. There were instruments from all over the world hanging off the walls. When we saw Jeff again at the East West Living fundraiser he invited us over to his apartment to look at his own collection of musical instruments.

Ananta, Caitanya, Rasa and I. You wouldn’t believe it. He has instruments from all over the place – a hurdy gurdy, and a rubab, and a dutar, and a nickelharpa, tonic tamorbourine or something like that…man. Drums from all over. Frame drums and tambourines and kanjeeras and all kinds of stuff. The coolest thing is that Jeff can play them all really well. And his apartment is beautiful. What a fun thing to do on a Sunday afternoon.

    Have just discovered your audio postings and I am so inspired. I love hearing all the talent that is happening in NYC. I live far away from devotees and love joining your virtual community. Maybe someday I can come join you live. Thanks again for inspiring this little devotee on the other side of the continent (literally blocks from the ocean). Dandavats.

    So cool! It’s my dream to collect weird and wonderful instruments too 😀 Don’t know if I’d be able to play them though…
