Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Jazz at Nehru Park

Nehru would have liked this - a collaboration of European embassies and learning institutions coming together to bring Jazz to Delhi on a beautiful evening in Nehru Park. The event takes place over three nights and if you havent gone along, tonight is your last chance.
I was there last night and was probably the oldest thing there, with a few exceptions, but enjoyed it just as much as the young things ! The event is free and the stage is set under a wonderful neem tree decorated with lanterns of silver strands shimmering in the evening breeze.
We caught Frakal, with the rather experimental Amyt Datta and Jivraj Singh playing some very loud music that almost bounced off my chest, as we were sitting quite close to the front. They were followed by Jump4Joy which did exactly what its name says - it made the whole audience JUMP FOR JOY.
No mean achievement and the energy brought to the show by Ulf Sandström was just astounding and electric. Part preacher, part philosopher, big part performer he wowed his audience who couldn't get enough of him. He was supported by his excellent band with a talented woman saxophonist which is quite a rare sight.


  1. Delhi is very deprived of festivals of this kind.Kudos to the organisers!

  2. We had so wanted to go, but let the fear of the unknown scare us of. What were the crowds like? Was it calm and collected?

    Thanks for sharing - wish we would have gone!
