American drummer and percussionist Greg Ellis recently took part in Ganesh Chaturthi festival celebrations in Pune, Maharashtra.
Videos shared online show the world-renowned drummer, who can be heard in the background of Hollywood blockbusters like The Matrix and Godzilla, playing on the streets as a crowd cheers him on.
One such video made it to the famed ‘WhatsApp Wonder Box’ of businessman Anand Mahindra, who shared it on Twitter.
“The Ganesh festival’s already gone global but this fusion on Mumbai’s streets is exciting,” he wrote while sharing the video, misidentifying the city as Mumbai.
He went on to ask his Twitter followers if the cultural team of his company should look into organising a street drums festival every year during the time of Ganesh festival.
