This week on Radio M, Chitrivina N. Ravikiran stops by the WBEZ studios to play the chitrivina and chat about his most recent dance collaboration, Pushed to the Edge. His innovative playing has garnered acclaim from such Indian musicians as Ravi Shankar, who claimed, If you don't believe in God, just look at Ravikiran. The New York Times praised him for his infinite capacity for micro-tonal shadings reminiscent of the human voice, while Folk Roots observed that necks crane, eyes peer, and minds tick when Ravikiran creates music before you. Tenor saxophonist George Brooks joins Ravikiran in the studio to perform on two compositions.

Also on the show, music from Amadou & Mariam featuring Santigold, Slavic Soul Party, Da Cruz, Sonny Rollins and Chicha Libre. This Playdio program contains highlights from an episode of Radio M that originally aired April 13th, 2012 on Chicago Public Radio.
