Zeshan B joins host Raina Douris

Zeshan B’s music combines his love of American soul with influences from India and Pakistan, where his parents are from. It’s a blend that started developing from a young age – Today, Zeshan shares how growing up as the son of immigrants shaped his view of America, of race, and of music. Plus, we’ll hear about the time he was invited by President Obama to play at the White House, which came with an interesting encounter with the Secret Service. Don’t miss host Raina Douris’ conversation with Zeshan B, and live songs from his new album, Melismatic.
