Sounded like an interesting talk but unfortunately I had no time to stay for the entire programme. Apparently there was a technical hiccup so they couldn't show their powerpoint slides (I suppose on the history and industry development bit). They went directly into a demo of the sounds used by guitarists like Eric Clapton, Slash (from Guns N Roses), Jimi Hendrix, BB King...
BTW, if you're between 13 to 25, and you're looking for a performance space for your amateur band, contact the folks at Jurong Regional Library. You have the entire floor at V.A.T. to show your music talents. Or email me and I'll put you in touch with them.
I'm personally hoping someone could do a programme/ workshop in the library on the Indian Sitar. I'm really curious how it plays, compared to the guitar. I almost signed up for lessons one time but chickened out. So a programme at the library would be a good, safe, and cost-free way to explore before committing more time and money. Anyone know of a good and reliable Sitar instructor?
