Experience Rochester | The Inner Light: The Beatles, India, Gurus, and the Legacy

Featuring: John Covach, Director, Institute for Popular Music, School of Arts, Sciences & Engineering | Professor of Music, Department of Music, School of Arts, Sciences & Engineering | Professor of Music Theory, Eastman School of Music

This talk will explore the significant influence of Indian ideas and musical styles on the Beatles' music––in their songs, philosophy, and lifestyle--and also trace the impact that the Beatles' interest in India had on later musicians and within popular culture more broadly.
