survivor girl ukulele band project 2016 -- back to kolkata!!! was the best yet!! six months of go go go!!! -- with a major performance scheduled for two short months after i arrived. the girls did great and had a blast. then we got ready for another performance! survivor girl ukulele band has performed ten times in kolkata!! 

the girls have also performed at two talent shows that were produced at the shelter home.

in between we had a number of "ookun jao!" (lice go away!) parties. (read about that on my blog!

i also traveled to dhaka, bangladesh, and brought ukuleles to some sgub students who were repatriated while i was in the usa. it was such a joy to see those girls again!!

and on my very last day in kolkata, i brought eight girls to a recording studio! we recorded tracks for three songs!!

and now it's time to raise support for survivor girl ukulele band 2017 -- back to kolkata again!!! to date i've received almost $10,000 in donations toward my $20,000 budget -- which includes costs for professional musicians to back up the survivor girls.
