Assistant Professor Kaley Mason describes the South Asian Sound Interventions goals and history in this interview with Julia Tobiska.

Aimed at including a balanced regional representation of classical, popular, and vernacular musical traditions, this performing arts series provides opportunities for more sustained engagement with South Asian art worlds in our community. This project not only seeks to explore the connection between musical skill and pedagogy, but also to highlight the vast traditions of South Asian performance that are situated outside the spaces of canonic music practices in the Indian subcontinent and their accompanying scholarship.
