In this episode we introduce the musical couple Vishwesh and Ashwini. Together, they form the unique musical team Vishwini. Software engineer Vishwesh is a vocalist, trained in both Carnatic and Hindustani styles but his versatility takes him beyond software and music. He is also an actor and a cartoonist. We reproduce below a cartoon Vishwesh drew exclusively for Awaaz Anjane. Ashwini is an electrical engineer and a vocalist and a Veena player. The duo performs in concerts in US and has released two original albums, Ghama Ghama and Resurgence. Both albums have been very well received. In this episode, we talk to the couple on their training and passion for music and play few songs from the albums and clips from their experiments with fusion music. The real bonus is, however, an extremely innovative performance by Vishwesh where he takes Awaaz Anjane listeners on a journey to meet the immortals of Hindi music through a song from movie Baazigar.
