Indian Classical Music with Dr. Nitin Ron Part 1 (S2 | E75)
What a pleasure it has been to get to know Dr. Nitin Ron, my guest this week on Lester the Nightfly. We met at an event in the West Village in Manhattan in 2021. After some back and forth we conceived this show about mindfulness, meditation, neuroscience, and Indian Classical music. And it all came together beautifully. You can judge for yourself by listening to our part one of a two-part series.
Author’s Note: This is exactly the reason I do this radio show. I get to meet wonderful people, learn about the unfamiliar, and, maybe, contribute a tiny bit of musical scholarship to the world.
