Rahul speaks to Vidhi Gandhi who worked at Bombay’s leading music venue, Blue Frog, about the growing popularity of electronic music, how the Police view club culture with suspicion, and the artists at the forefront of Indian electronic music.

Charlotte speaks to Darko in Yangon. Darko is the lead singer of Side Effect- one of Burma?s first ?indie? bands- about new developments in Burmese music and pop culture at a time when the country is opening up to the outside world.
