Please tune in Wednesday, August 8, 2012, at 12 noon US Eastern Time, to www.healthylife.net when I present “The Healing Sounds Show”. My guest for this show will be Jai Uttal.
Jai Uttal’s musical roots embrace a rich variety of cultures and traditions that span the globe and the centuries. From the hillbilly music of the Appalachian Mountains to the passionate strains of Bengali street singers, from the haunting rhythms and melodies of ancient India to contemporary electric rock sounds, Jai’s music distills the essence of diverse musical forms. As a child in New York City, he began studying classical piano at the age of seven, and later learned to play old time banjo, harmonica, and guitar. At the age of 19, Jai moved to California to learn the sarod, a 25-stringed Indian instrument from his musical teacher Ustad Ali Akbar Khan.
