In 2002 I made a one year trip to Asia, after months of traveling from one place to another, all I thought was to stay in one place and live there for a while: Varanasi / Unfortunately the weather was not favorable and just when crossing the border from Nepal to India it was 42 degrees at 9 in the morning, so I immediately changed my plan and went up to the Himalayas where the weather was much better and I could spend some months living in the mountains / In 2012, ten years later, I returned to India and Varanasi was the first destination on my list / It was inevitable to fall in love with this city where all the time something is happening, as a sound recordist I found here an eternal track to record, there is always sound, there is never silence / A city so ancient and with so many stories that it seems that the walls speak to you, seems as if they whisper when you walk along its narrow streets, whispers that get mixed with herds of buffalos coming down to the river, religious ceremonies, street sellers, street dog fights, mantras through speakers, children playing cricket, people washing clothes / It seems that time passes a lot slower here / It is an endless loop, a paradise for sound lovers //

06:41 / December 1, 2012 / 25.297033, 83.007382 / Monks Morning Exercise / This sound I found it by chance, like everything that happens in Varanasi, you can walk through any alley and find wonderful things, beautiful sounds / These little monks were doing their morning breathing exercises, instructed by one of the teachers who was giving the indications through an old school sound system that gave him tremendous distortion / In the background you can hear some hits from people who were washing clothes on the banks of the Ganges River //
