We were first introduced to State of Bengal in 2012 when he played at our place. Not only did he pull of a fantastic gig, he was a wonderful teacher, dreamer and philosopher. In 2013, we got him down once again to Bangalore to do a workshop for electronic music producers.Not only was he a pioneer in creating the Asian Underground music scene, he was a fantastic teacher too.
This is not a tribute, but a celebration of a fantastic musician and a human being - Sam Zaman aka State of Bengal
All musicians playing at this gig have at some point been influenced by his music or have been through his teaching sessions.

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
