4 songs from my new cd & info on My Space

Listen now!

Indonesia Postmodern, cd released

'Indonesia Postmodern' is a collection of film music on which I performed sitar & requinto with gamelan instruments, with funds going towards rebuilding the ISI Arts Institute that was destroyed by the recent earthquake in Java.

Indonesia Postmodern

I composed & performed the Indian music for this new Albert Brooks film released on Jan 20th. Azam Ali (voice), Pedro (bansuri), Jagan (violin), Abhijit (tabla), Hom Nath (tabla & tarang), Peter (cello) worked with us on the music with composer Michael Giacchino 'The Incredibles'.

A hilarious story of what happens when the U.S. Government sends comedian Albert Brooks to India and Pakistan to find out what makes the over 300 million Muslims in the region laugh. It's a funny flick that wouldn't get released by Sony because of fears of the word Muslim in the title. The website for the film www.lookingforcomedy.com

Salaam Suite cd

My new cd called 'Salaam Suite' is now available, a collection of songs & instrumentals calling for unity, awareness, peace & justice is now available. Members of Ozomatli, Quetzal & Kan Zaman Ensemble are featured on the new recording. www.myspace.com/salaamsuite

On Dec 15th I received an award from LA Music Week’ and certificate of appreciation from the City of Los Angeles from District #1 Councilman Ed Reyes.

The award & certificate are “In appreciation of your pioneering music in our community and dedicating your life in teaching the rich multicultural heritage of music to our youth, therefore making our city a better place in which to live.”

Jugalbandi Concerts

I have been playing several sitar & violin jugalbandi concerts

Indonesia & APPEX

Paul spent the summer of '04 on an APPEX Fellowship in Bali and also visited Jogyakarta in Central Java to celebrate the 100th birthday master musician & teacher of Pak Chokro. APPEX was a wonderful collaborative creative experience with an amazing group of puppeteers, dancers and musicians from India, Philippines, Malaysia, Java, Bali & US.

Prayer for the New Year

Dear Creator Lord,

May we find in man today those who proclaim you bravely in love…
not in fear & hate.

May we build up those who stand firm in the truth…
not deceiving with double talk.

May we teach unity of humankind…
not blinding ourselves with divisive nationalism.

May we stand for justice… and lift our voices against oppression & inequality.

May we work daily for peace… opposing the machineries of war.
In the face of all calamities and injustice…

May we trust that you will reveal in us a great light and
your Spirit of unconquerable love.

Paul Z.
