There are very strict laws here in Singapore. As you can see this is the immigration card you have to fill in upon entering countries. I am also told not to chew any gum as this is also illegal and may result in a trip to prison.
I'm a professional Musician, Composer and Teacher living in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. Since 2002 I have been a student and disciple of the legendary Maestro Ravi Shankar and completed many tours of USA, Canada, Europe, Russia, Africa, Middle East, Asia, Far East and Australia. I am one of the few resident students at The Ravi Shankar Centre in New Delhi, India where i spend most winters. I also work with Ravi's youngest daughter Anoushka and in 2006 became a member of her Ensemble 'The Anoushka Shankar Project'. I run a studio and teaching practice from my home where i work on many projects. I compose music for Films, TV, Adverts, Games and Multimedia as well as collaborate with other musicians and artists. I was recently granted the Digital City Fellowship at the Institute of Digital Innovation in Teesside and in April 2009 i became Visiting Lecturer at Northern School of Sound. I am endorsed by Godin Guitars, Novation, Toontrack, IK Multimedia, Arobas Music-Guitar Pro and K&K Pickups.
