Some songs I've co-written (with Twice A Man), available on CD (free MP3 audio samples online) "Noises of India" and "Shanti-Shanti" taken from the 2003 album "Agricultural Beauty" by Twice A Man, Gothenburg

The Swedish rockers Drift Band recorded a song based on experiences at my wedding, "An Old Monk in an Ambassador in the Rain" and here you can listen to the song

And here's the genuine Frank Zappa of Swedish heavy metal, with his band called Freak Kitchen. The other day I just co-wrote a hardrock song with these fellows... probably it'll be released sometime 2011 but the band might play it at concerts even before that. BREAKING NEWS: listen to the title song from the forthcoming movie "Once Upon a Time in Scandinavistan" (also known, in Swedish, as "Tandooriälgen")

...more to come!
