meet Lou Majaw

WIKIPEDIA says

Lou Majaw (born 1947) is a Khasi guitarist popularly known as the “One of the Biggest Fans of Bob Dylan in the North-East”.[citation needed]

Born to a poor family, the Majaws could not afford a guitar or a radio. In a friend’s house he was introduced to the music of Bill Haley and Elvis Presley, and taught himself the guitar in school. Majaw then moved on to Kolkata (Calcutta) where he played in bars and pubs for various groups such as the Dynamite Boys, Vanguards, Supersound Factory, and Blood and Thunder. In 1966, Lou was introduced to Bob Dylan‘s work. Inspired by his music, he later organized a “Dylan’s birthday concert” in Shillong on 24 May 1972. Since then he has organized the concert each year on 24 May to pay obeissance to Dylan, with the shows eventually gaining national and international fame.”
