The Sri Dasmesh Malaysian Sikh Band and California’s Sikhs are becoming well acquainted, as the ensemble performed at the Gurdwara in Lodi, California yesterday. The photo above is among several from the Lodi News-Sentinel:

The last time the band played in Lodi was 13 years ago, when some of the band members were infants. They have 37 members whose ages range from 14-50 years old. The students took two weeks off of school for their tour all over California. (Ian Jonsson/News-Sentinel)
