    I lived in Allahabad for 10 years, 1992–2002. There was a regular TV show on called Circus, which featured amazing clips from various circus performances. During break the band played, and a few times I saw the band trumpet player do a trumpet solo that was just soooooo sweet. I dearly wish I knew where I could get copy of that, video or audio.
