I was lucky to be invited into the home of a poor family in Delhi, India. They lived in 2 rooms with about 12 members of their family. the old stone building they were in housed many families. The rooms were dark with just a bare light bulb for illumination. This young teenager, pulled out this keyboard from under his uncles bed and improvised a song for me in classical Indian music style. He has never had any training. Very strange to hear this on a cheap synthesiser. While he was playing, his familly members were clustered around me, touching me and wanting to talk, although I only wanted to record the music. I think this was the first time they had ever had an American in their home. They all wanted me to take their picture. Note how the young man keeps looking at the camera to be sure he was still being recorded.
