The inspiration behind the ‘Suitcase Show’ is 2 fold; Initially, because I wanted to build a show that I could put in a suitcase, and with a guitar in the other hand, travel with. So I built some video backing tracks, as visual accompaniments to the songs, and collected some poems and stories to give other songs another layer of dimension.

The other fold of the suitcase is inspired by my Father, who, as an Astronomer, used to travel to some exotic places (Africa, South America, Polynesia etc.,) as part of a solar eclipse expedition/research team. As a kid, I used to love to see what he pulled out of the suitcase upon returning… always some exotic hand made curio from a far off land. So, for these shows, I’m adding a few ‘show and tell’ items in the case to bring along.
