Ajay Atul in Hollywood

I was lucky enough to be one of the bassists in an orchestra that recorded music for composer team Ajay Atul. It was the first Indian-produced film to be scored in Hollywood. They made a cool little promo video about the experience/session/music and it includes a surprising amount of bass section footage.
