Tune in November 18th for an interview with Andrew Mendelson, a Texas-born student of the sitar, ventures to India to compete in the largest music competition in the state of Rajasthan. As he prepares to vie for the championship, he discovers that he’s not only the first American competitor to participate, but that his western identity is in direct conflict with his desire to gain acceptance in the world of Indian classical music, even in his efforts to earn the approval of his Guru. Sitar in hand, he attempts to navigate the complex rules of this ancient tradition only to find his culture clash might be insurmountable.

Watch the trailer for his documentary “A Cricket in the Court of Akbar”:
