In today’s podcast, Rajan travels to Canada to meet with Ashwin Sood, an English–Canadian musician and drummer who has performed with a number of popular music artists including his ex-wife Sarah McLachlan.

Ashwin Sood shares his passion for music and how his dreams became reality. He also gives us a glimpse into his personal journey, experience, and relationships.  What emerges is a human-centric conversation that looks at the concept of love and being love.  Today’s podcast is a melting pot of rhythmic beats and an ode to life being how you want it to be.

About the Global Indian Series:
My name is Rajan Nazran and in the past 15 years, I have travelled to over 58 countries, taking on some of the biggest conversations and covering stories from around the globe. My appetite for exploration, inside know-how and good food, has seen me voyaging far and wide, from the edges of the Amazon Rainforest, battling against the hurricanes of the Caribbean, being taken hostage in Eastern Europe, through to facing Ebola in West Africa. But now I take on my biggest expedition so far…discovering countries and places that are home to our diaspora and the real experiences that come with it.
