Reena Esmail's Global Village


August 11, 2021

Reena Esmail is a great example of a present-day composer who melds different cultures and musical traditions in her own works. Her music finds a way to weave together traditional Indian classical music like ragas with the Western European classical tradition. Steve features her work “Teen Murti” among his selections this week.
