The Music In My Blood

Stage Play

The Music In My Blood crosses the boundaries of time and space to bring together Prema and Walter, two people bound by their love of Indian music.

Fleeing the demands of legacy from being an Indian classical singer, from a musical dynasty in Benares, Prema chooses to pursue a history degree in New York City. She discovers the writing of Walter Kaufmann, a Jewish man who developed a devotion to Indian classical music when he found refuge in India during WWII. He gave India its iconic All India Radio – Akashvani tune that has welcomed the morning for the past seventy years. Kaufman’s words seemingly reaffirm for Prema that once you become a musician you cannot un become.
