We may have left the Ladies Special behind us in March, but the conversation around woman in music must not end. So, on this episode of Maed in India, we’re featuring the prolific percussionist and producer, Swarupa Ananth. She tells us what it was like growing up around her first musical inspirations – her mother and grandmother, picking up the tabla at the age of 7, and how Zakir Hussain’s father Ustad Alla Rakha became her guru. She also performs 3 songs from her debut solo EP, Recomeçar, an ode to women!

Song List:

Happy Dance (01:12 - 04:12)

Recomeçar (21:46 - 25:52)

Clap Along (42:51 - 45:37)
