Episode 1 - Vijit Malik: Bringing Doc Watson to Dubai
Episode 1 is an interview with Dubai based performer Vijit Malik, an accomplished musician, as well as a lover of the Grateful Dead, Hindustani, and bluegrass music. Vijit talks about his experience growing up in New Delhi, the connections between Indian and some American musics and what it's like to perform in a country where 'popular' music may not be as common as it is in other parts of the world.

Below you'll find an incredible mix of songs from Vijit's Soundcloud account. This collection of songs he recorded includes traditional Indian melodies alongside Doc Watson, Paul Simon and Grateful Dead songs, among others.
