Prompted by the Ananda Mela festival’s subtitle — “joyful festival of India” — this week’s show included joyful music from all over the planet. Including India, of course. Plus an interview with Beloved Festival director Elliot Rasenick about his August 11-15 gathering of sacred music and arts near the Oregon coast.
