What is it like being a heavy metal and rock fan in the Caribbean, or a blues fan in India? What about being a musician in those genres? Can one make a living? Is this music “foreign”, “Westernising” and “imperialist”? Does it count as “local” or “national music”?

Join me, Dr. Kirk Meighoo (a musician, too, in another life), as we discuss with Nigel Rojas guitarist and singer of the Caribbean’s biggest rock/metal band, Orange Sky, and Rudy Wallang, the guitarist of India’s biggest blues band, Soulmate
