Tokyo/IBNS: Indian percussionist Prodyut Mukherjee, a GIMA winner and Grammy jury member, concluded his five-city tour of Japan with a performance at the Embassy of India, Tokyo.
Held under the aegis of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), the musical tour also covered Hiroshima, Kyoto, Kofu, and Yokohama.
Mukherjee acknowledged the warm welcome accorded to him by the Indian ambassador, Sibi George, and was full of praise for the hospitality extended by the people of Japan.
