Only a few episodes ago I was joined by Bollywood Blues artist, Aki Kumar. Aki had some exciting news at the time that was under wraps, so I wanted to have him back to announce his signing with Sony Music India and the release of his single Dilruba.

Episode Highlights

We start by discussing the Sony Music India launch of his music video, and go on to discuss:

  • How this opportunity has opened him up to a new yet familiar market
  • The unusual nature of a Hindi artist in a Blues world
  • How his relationship with Little Village Foundation has supported his career
  • The reaction of his band members
  • The universal language of blues and how that can increase your paid work
