Ep.39 Maed in India feat. Arjun S Ravi Pt.1

In a new episode special of #MaedinIndia, Mae picks indie scene stalwarts to give their pick of Indian indie music they love and play it across the show. This week's guest is Arjun S Ravi, music journalist for over a decade, editor of Indecision & NH7.in, director of Only Much Louder and my old boss. He talks about being a music geek & journalist, why he thinks your band sucks,NH7.in, and his new docu-series Standing By (that chronicles the Indian indie music since the 1920s). He also takes me through his playlist of songs that triggered his fanboy-love for the independent music scene in India.
