Kiran Ahluwalia’s 7 Billion – Podcast 266


We hang with the great Kiran Ahluwalia and she shares selections from her new album 7 Billion. Originaly broadcast live on WKCR 89.9 FM-NY.

Kiran Ahluwalia is a modern exponent of the great vocal traditions of India and Pakistan which she honors intensely yet departs from in masterful, personal ways. Her original compositions embody the essence of Indian music while embracing influences from Mali and Western blues, rock, R & B and nuances of jazz. With her 5-piece group of electric guitar, accordion, organ, tabla and drum kit, Ahluwalia creates boundary-breaking songs that invite us to explore the human condition, transcending the self by losing ourselves in a trance of groove and melody.

itunes-button1The California Honeydrops are more than a band, they’re a traveling party.  All stellar musicians they’ve earned their stripes playing with folks like B.B. King, Dr. John, Buddy Guy, and Allen Toussaint.  We caught up with them as they were touring with Bonnie Raitt at NYC’s Beacon Theater and got to sit down with their lead singer, multi-instrumentalist Lech Wierzynski.  We also got to hear some selections from their latest album, A River’s Invitation. californiahoneydrops
