Earth Institute Sunday Song and Story Swap - the India Edition

After tough weekday conversations untangling the toughest questions in sustainability, Andy Revkin of Columbia University’s Earth Institute kicks back with lyrical and artistic friends and guests recharging hearts and souls and pursuing human progress through the arts.
This week's special guests bring Indian song and storytelling to the foreground.
You'll meet Mitali Bhamik, a master of Hindustani traditional singing who has trained and performed with some of India's greatest masters of this ancient art; and Nidhi Thakur, who besides being an economics professor at Kean University, is a philosopher and poet adept at crafting poems in both English and Hindi.
