Hello and farewell

Arpana Sangamithra

April 16, 2015 - 12:00 pm

Sonic Traveler with DJ Spektra, featuring ambient, jazz and trance rhythms from around the world, is moving to Wednesday evenings from 9-11pm. Sonic Traveler replaces The Spice Route, whose host has taken leave from KBCS.

The Spice Route host Arpana Sangamithra filled our lives with the music of South Asia, and we will miss her presence and talents a great deal.

The Spice Route was our weekly musical journey through the diverse musical landscape of the Indian sub-continent. Listeners have tuned in from all over the world to hear everything from classical Carnatic music and mellow ghazals.

“I have hosted Spice Route for nearly 8 years and it has brought be tremendous joy, peace and fulfillment. However, the time has come for me to hang my headphones and bid adieu to the airwaves. Thank you to all the amazing listeners, friends, co-hosts, other show hosts and my incredible subs! I will always love you!! May your life be filled with music and love!” – Arpana

The Spice Route playlists and two-week audio archive are available here.
