The term Yatra (यात्रा yātrā) originally means pilgrimage in Indian. Yatra is also the name of a now almost forgotten festival in India, starting in the late 1960’s where jazz musicians and musicians from Asia came together. For me, Yatra is a symbol of my personal musical pilgrimage with all of its diversity.
