Since there’s no such thing as too much music, composer Reena Esmail says everyone should feel free to add their voice to the chorus. Esmail is the subject of this month’s KUSC Local Composer Project and she describes how her musical journey brought together Indian classical and western classical music. Plus, the quirky French movie Amelie was a big screen charmer, now it’s a stage musical. Get to know Esmail and Amelie on the Arts Alive podcast.
From the Central Coast to San Diego, from Santa Monica to Palm Springs, there are fascinating people creating incredible art and performances. KUSC will be covering those experiences on Arts Alive. And when you’re in the mood for a little more, like a longer version of an interview, more Arts Alive coverage is available online at kusc.org/artsalive.
