by David Wagner

“If you listen to a song on the radio – a rock song or whatever – it could just be an overwhelming amount of ‘This song is very sad,'” says Alam. “But if you listen to Indian music, it seems to me like it goes in and out of feeling sad. There’s joy, there’s sadness, there’s pathos, there’s heroism, there’s devotion, detachment, wonder.”
