The music of Prasant Rahakrishnan reflects his Indian background and his horn playing in the jazz tradition. He talks about his study of Carnatic Indian Classic music and how it finds it’s way into his sax playing and his group VidyA. Also, Asians in America are often in the background when it comes to the progressive movements. But a book Stand Up documents their contributions in a talk with Eastwind Books. And hear about support for the disappeared in the Philippines.
