Darren 'Harpy' Smith - Preserving the art of the Harp.

Profile Information

About me:
I have played for 20 years after finding my first in a field not knowing what it was. The first person I met that could play other than myself was 2 years ago in India, since then this little instrument of my heart for so long, has now become a bigger part of my life.

I travel as much as I can afford, my second home being India. I was born to play the harp. I've always carried 2 Schwartz harps when I travel to give away, to people that show an interest to play. India 2 years ago I was 'given' my first Dan Moi, it was a moment.

This is the first community of this sort that I have joined, I've been a bit of a loner where the harp is concerned for many years ~ nobody really appreciated it ~ it's got me through some tough times in life and a small friend that has always been at my side.

I am an IT specialist, teacher, designer, I dabble in web design, writing, poertry.

I'll be at the 2008 Jews Harp Festival in Norway, September. This will be my first so I'm really excited about meeting more players.

~ Om Namah Shivaya ~
As a band we are:
No fan club as yet ;}
Jews Harp (J R Smith) ~ Tibetan Prayer Bowl ~ Didgeridoo ~ Bodhrán ~ Djembe ~ Harmonica (novice) ~ Tabla (novice) ~ Guitar (useless)
Richard Feynman (Tuva or Bust) ~ Shiva 'Nataraja' (Lord of the dance) ~ Shantaram ~ India ~ My friends ~ Kundalini Airport ~ Prem Joshua ~ Guinness - random people

Come along and Twang.me!

Hi all.. well I've almost got everything up together and all going well Twang.me should be ok to register. I must stress that this is a personal project so does not have the infrastructure like OMN which is mostly preconstructed on the NING networks. I have my reservations about NING in light of recent events with open source widget developers, it seems NING can drop anybody as they see fit regardless of who may be using the plugins.… Continue

Sorry, I just Trump'd

I'm glad I found this community after surfing around looking at some of Tran quang hai's videos on youtube I found his site here. I was hoping to go to Tuva a couple of years for the World of music festival in 2006, but ended up spending more time in India.…

Hi Darren - of course your latest activity is now that you invited Martin in this kind of network. Therefore you are once again a featured member of this network and now on rotation position number #1 - please give me time for a response to your blog post. I have different arguments and points why I started this network on Ning. And I know that was the best thing what I could do. I can use my own google adds. Remove the google adds is the most expensive premium service by Ning. But the support and benefit of Ning is immeasurable. Believe me! This network is now connect with more than 40 networks on Ning. Not OMN is the network. Ning is the network and be are a part of it!
Best regards, peace, love and respect -

Best regards
