I was mesmerized to this older lady playing this beautiful but rough Veena. She played it so calmly, so familiar with it although she needed help to even carry it from one stage to another sitting area.

It a specific instrument of Southern India, which music style is all together different from the north.

I later shared my impressions with another elder lady and asked weather the young generation is interested in learning to play it. She said they're all about the hand held guitars and to study the Veena one needs to go to India.
