There were many different styles of music on the stage at the festival...Shringara
Nepal with 3 masters from Katmandu performed on their first U.S.
tour, Donna the Buffalo, an acoustic folk rock group from New York,
excited the festival crowd, The Persuasions with a cappella Street
Music, and many more bands played throught the weekend.
To the right, a group that did not perform, set up along the
lake and provided some rhythmic entertainment. I later learned
that drums play a significant part in the experience of the festival.
More on that later.
It was funny how Donna the Buffalo, a favorite of Ben & Kristin
and their friends got their name. The group was originally called,
"Dawn of the Buffalo" when they had 2,000 tee shirts
ordered. In a mis-communication, the tee shirts were printed 'Donna
the Buffalo' and the name stuck.
