A brilliant gig at the Blue Frog with Sunita Bhuyan and a fusion of Indian and Scottish music. The highlight was Diljeet singing for Scotland with a beautiful rendition of Banks and Braes! There’ll be no more shying away from performing in front of people after that!

Our first visit to the ADAPT centre in Bandra. It’s amazing to be on the other side of the world and find an organisation that so much reflects our own values of inclusion and equality. This summarises the many wonderful conversations that were had today.
