A nice to the point interview with Nitin Sawhney by Samira Shackle, The NEW STATESMAN.
Folks, got another exclusive for you from Canada by my brother, Anuj Rastogi. He was interviewed by SoulTV.net a few weeks ago. The subject is peace and love, and touches on the question whether artists play a role in providing compassionate messages for all mankind regardless of faith, colour and creed.
Anuj draws on his experiences as an artist and his responsibility in communicating thoughts and emotions through music. Plus, there’s a few glimpses into Anuj’s new album which is under way.
A deep and thought provoking 15 mins interview – a must watch!
