First spin Amarrass

It was a pleasure today to have friend and scene manager Ankur Malhotra of Amarrass Records in studio today to talk about all things Amarrass Records including the Amarrass Derest Music Festival, work with amazing musicmen like the Barmer Boys and Lakha Khan and Sakar Khan, as well as a mutual friend in Vieux Farka Touré. Describing the field recordings in detail and the live desert fest from the man who helped make it go was like being there. We will certainly be inviting Ankur back on to fill us in more about this great music, and the wonderful people helping to keep it alive. Here s what happened in the first part of the show when he and I were in the now:
