IndiEarth Xchange took place in Chennai, India, and was created as a forum for the promotion of independent music in India and the Indian Ocean area. For three frenetic days at the Park Hotel, IndiEarth hosted conferences, schmoozes and performances by a wide variety of independent artists. The hotel offered nightclub sized rooms with stages, intimate bars, and even an “Out There” performance space in the lobby. Karthick Iyer whose music reflects his carnatic training (since the age of five) and a western harmonic sensibility, performed in the “Out There” stage, and this, his closing number, was particularly lyrical.

Here’s where you’ll find my weekly original world music video blogs that appear on Huffington Post, as well as an archive starting in April of 2009.

This is also the place where you will find video that is exclusive to my site. I’ve traveled to places like Uzbekistan, Morocco, and Taiwan and no matter where I go I have found amazingly talented and creative people working in every genre from the deepest traditions to the cutting edge.

It’s been incredibly rewarding to interview them and to capture some of what they do on video. Enjoy what you see and hear, and let me know what you think. I welcome your feedback.
