of the most wonderful things about Mc Leod Ganj is the art scene it has going.
There are posters everywhere about concerts, dances, exhibitions, movie or
workshops. Many cafes up have a music jam session at least once a week. Some of
these places have resident musicians who usually work in the restaurant or cafe
and kick-start a jam session. These are fun evenings, like a bring your own
instrument party. Travellers and sounds from around the world come together
organically. Some of these sessions are stunning as there is no one dominant
style and the music keeps changing as musicians join in and drop out.
we walked around the market in McLeod Ganj, we came across a contemporary dance
by a couple of South Korean dancers. The performance was in honour of ‘Earth
Day’, and quite aptly they had to battle with passing vehicles for space, since
they were performing in the middle of the road. Ramoo Hong, the dancer wearing
pink pants, dealt with the cars quite beautifully, stopping them, caressing
them, cajoling them and playing with them before finally letting them pass. He
has a sense of humour in the way his body moves which makes it go beyond
calisthenics and cool contortions. We also heard him sing and he has that
lovely voice with a low resonance that can give you goose bumps!
