RIP Steve Jobs & Jagjit Singh

I had just finished playing my piece “Tarang” with the Silk Road Ensemble and got back to my green room when I saw Cristin, Yo-Yo Ma’s General Manager, looking for me.

She said, “Yo-Yo’s looking for you, he wants you to come meet this friend of his.” I followed her to the back of the auditorium, where I saw Yo-Yo talking with a small family. On seeing me, he very excitedly tells the woman, “Here is the guy who composed the piece you liked!” And to me he said, “Sandeep meet my very good friend Steve, his wife Laurene and the children.” The gentleman and his wife talked very warmly to me for some time.
