Viveick Rajagopalan: Carnatic and rap collisions

Viveick Rajagopalan: New Indian Maestro

This episode of Peter Culshaw's occasional global music radio update features guest interview Viveick Rajagopalan, one of the hits of this summers WOMAD Festival. He talks (from 40 minutes in) about how he mixes South Indian rhythms and contemporary Mumbai rap in a very cool and innovative manner. The rest of the show is almost entirely subcontinental, featuring film musicians from Lahore, groovy 1960s Bombay hipsters, and sufistic music from the likes of the great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, among other delights.
