Congratulations – Trupti Pandkar Debut EP
A big congratulations to singer Trupti Pandkar and bassit Hiroshi Tokieda on Trupti’s debut EP. Couldn’t wait to pop the CD in and take a listen. The music sounds great and it’s so good to hear they are doing well in Tokyo.
It’s a Long Story
I met Trupti and Hiroshi at Berklee College of Music. The year we graduated, I had the honor of performing with Trupti at Outside the Box as members of Rhythm of the Universe. After graduating, we bounced around the globe. I ended up in Los Angeles, and Trupti and Hiroshi ended up in Tokyo.
In Tokyo, Trupti and Hiroshi met my mom, and they started working on “I Will Bleed.” Trupti and my mom co-wrote the lyrics, and the song is based on a poem my mom wrote. You can listen to an early version of the song in this video.
