We’ll focus on some of the most fascinating cross-cultural musical collaborations this week: South African meets India; Tuva meets Italy; Pakistan meets Canada; Senegal meets Wales. You get the idea. Plus an interview with Ed Hanley, who plays tabla with Autorickshaw and has a new short film out called Mushroom. (for a 50% off code to view “Mushroom,” visit STG on Facebook.)
