India — Independence and Remembrance 6–8:30PM SLT

We have three rea­sons to cel­e­brate the music of India tonight at Mon­day Night World Music.

First, today (August 15) is Indi­a’s Inde­pen­dence Day, the 64th birth­day of the world’s largest democ­ra­cy. Sec­ond, after years of dream­ing and study­ing but nev­er plan­ning, I (Carter) have final­ly booked my very first vis­it to India. And third — less joy­ful­ly — a leg­endary actor of Hin­di movies, Sham­mi Kapoor, died over the week­end.

Sham­mi’s movies were always full of joy and vital­i­ty, though, and so instead of somber mourn­ing we offer in his mem­o­ry a rau­cous cel­e­bra­tion of the musi­cal delights his coun­try has to offer. So tune in to hear many styles of great music from India. We’ll hear lots of music from Bol­ly­wood (main­stream Hin­di movies), with a spe­cial focus on some of the songs that Sham­mi’s shim­my made famous. We’ll hear oth­er Indi­an pop, jazz, and fusion as well.

Come hang out and enjoy the grooves tonight from 6–8:30PM SLT. You can find us in world at Mad­hu’s Café Indi­en, or lis­ten in on Radio Riel’s main stream. Hope to see you there! Indi­an dress strong­ly encour­aged but entire­ly option­al.
