I felt a bit mislead by all of the bands listed on the description, as it was only a few former band members playing completely different styles of music. The genre was for the most part "World" and it was decent. The audience was sparse and the Boxing Ghandis were bad enough that we left after their first song.

Van-Anh Vanessa Vo (dan Bau, dan Tranh, Trung) [Vietnam]
Ashwin Batish (sitar) and Keshav Batish (tabla) [India]
