The Voice is a Wild Thing Series #3: Changing the Narrative of the Song & the Story with Musician and Actor Ronobir Lahiri
“I never really felt all that Indian until I picked up a sitar. Even now after playing for almost 30 years, I hear that and it sounds like the authentic voice of my soul.” Musician, actor, composer, singer, dad, and overall renaissance man Ronobir Lahiri takes us through the journey of following his dream and finding his voice as an artist. He discusses his experience navigating the racial landscape of American theatre and television, and how he was able to pivot, adapt and find a place as a creative artist in that paradigm. Ronobir also performs live for us, a beautiful rendition of “I Say a Little Prayer,” and talks about his music, how he began to play the sitar and the importance of not burying our voice as we go through life, in defining who we are, what we’re doing, and how we talk to ourselves.
