A Conversation With Vijay Iyer says
MacArthur Fellow Vijay Iyer shares the inspiration behind and process of creating his explosive work of live music and film inspired by the Hindu festival of Holi.

A remarkably inventive musician who is at home in both the worlds of jazz and contemporary concert music, American pianist and composer Vijay Iyer’s originality draws much from his rich Indian heritage. With Radhe Radhe: Rites of Holi, performed by Iyer and the virtuosic International Contemporary Ensemble, Iyer responds to Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring with an explosive work of live music and film inspired by the ancient Hindu Holi festival of colors and love celebrated each spring in southern Asia.
