Podcast: A Conversation with Swati Bhise, Choreographer of Newport Bridgefest’s ‘A Bridge Together’

Bringing a blend of Indian, African and American dance and music, an exciting group of musicians and dancers will present a free concert this evening at Fort Adams, as part of Newport Bridgefest, the celebration that spans the week between Newport Folk and Newport Jazz Festivals.

Swati Bhise, conductor and choreographer for the orchestra and dance segment of A Bridge Together joined me for a conversation to talk about tonight’s event.

An accomplished actress, and Hollywood director, Swati talks about the music and dance, and the importance of sharing cultural roots and traditions.

A Bridge Together, a special Free concert and Newport Jazz Festival “extra” will take place tonight at 6:30 pm on the Quad Stage at Fort Adams State Park.
