From the Beatles and the Byrds in rock to Vijay Iyer and Rudresh Mahanthappa in jazz, Western musicians have used drones and the raga format to thoroughly explore how Indian music–Hindustani and Carnatic–can be incorporated into their own creations. The Jazz River showcases both styles with examples of early fusion pioneers along with some of the best young players from the U.S., Britain, and India who are taking it in new and exciting directions. Tune in this Sunday, September 1 from 5-6pm for “My East is Your West” with host Matthew Goldwasser only on The Jazz River and KUVO Jazz.
