Washerman’s Dog is a blog dedicated to celebrating music. While the blog is a new addition to the WordPress community it has been on another platform for nearly 3 years. Over that time the Washerman’s Dog has grown up and the vision has become more refined. Until recently, we shared a lot of music from South Asia (India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan and the Maldives) along with music from all other corners of the world. And if you have a particular interest in South Asian/sub-continental music (of all varieties) then please check out my other blog Harmonium Music. I’ll not be posting South Asian music on Washerman’s Dog from now on. But if you’re interested in all other sorts of music from the West Coast to West Africa and North Dakota to North Korea, then this is the place to be. The original Washerman’s Dog blog can be accessed here. If you’re new, you can browse through the archives to get an idea of where this blog is coming from. NOTE: Media Fire excommunicated me late in 2012 so almost all links from the beginning to January 2013 are dead. There is no way I can re-link all of these, but I am happy to take individual requests for specific links. I’ll do my best! If you’re interested in who the Washerman’s Dog is in the non-virtual world then do not check out this link which is dead.
I am an aid worker by day (currently working out of Kuala Lumpur) but grew up in India and have an abiding case of itchy feet. Though as my children grow up the itchiness is far less bothersome and in fact, I wish I could stop this sort of peripatetic existence. I’ve written a couple of novels (got one published even) and write a weekly column for an online magazine in India.
