PARTICIPANT / Sanchal Malhar

  • Name Sanchal Malhar

Sanchal Malhar (Delhi)

In October 2010, I found myself shuttling between the home of a young woman I had recently met and the floor of a dance studio.  Typically returning late at night, and over the course of a week, Sanchal would be in one of the rooms of this residence, behind a locked door near the kitchen, playing guitar and singing for a woman who will remain unnamed here.  I would come home, make a sandwich, and just listen with a sense of awe of what was happening in that room – the full contours of which were and are of course none of my business, thankfully.  I am not sure if an imagined relationship made his voice and playing more urgent, or if it was just where I was at that point in my life, but it usually would take me 30 minutes to eat that sandwich as I would often forget that I was, indeed, eating a sandwich.  For this set Sanchal will perform alone, with his acoustic guitar (addendum: yes Sanchal plays with Superfuzz, Indigo Children, he’s amazing, etc).
