Indian percussionist, composer, jazz player, and British-Asian underground mentor Trilok Gurtu visits with John Schaefer and introduces material from his latest recording for this edition of New Sounds. Gurtu has been playing since he was 6, and in his teenage years he expressed a desire to play tabla like "Jimi Hendrix played guitar". Also, hear other cross-cultural works by Indian-American singer Shweta Jhaveri and more. Jhaveri is part of an all-female program of North Indian classical music at Symphony Space this weekend, which also features Lakshmi Shankar, one of India’s foremost vocalists and India's first professional female tabla player Anuradha Pal, a disciple of Zakir Hussain and the late Ustad Allarakha.
