The Daily Rhino
The Party that Launched a Thousand Ships (well, 3 so far)
SOME good news amongst all my usual doom and spite. Nihal Arthanayake - BBC TV and radio presenter, DJ, journalist and, most impressively, friend of The Daily Rhino, started up a club night entitled Bombay Bronx a little over a year ago. It has since been a showcase for performances by everyone who’s anyone in the British Asian music world (and occasionally some from abroad). Since the Boxing Day tsunami, Nihal announced all proceeds raised would go towards charitable causes in Sri Lanka, including building some fishing boats - which are vital for the coastal fishing industry to regain its sea legs. He sent me a few pics which I thought were pretty damn cool, to see that for all of us who attended, we have actually produced something tangible to people thousands of miles away. All we did was party.Proceeds from Bombay Bronx are now going to the Kashmir Quake Appeal.Listen to Nihal's programme 12 months on from the great wave.Take a look at a bunch of pictures I took when I spent a month at tsunami relief camps in March.
