Holiday: Sarod & Beats is traditional with a Hindustani twist. Take a song like “We Three Kings.” We’ve all heard the original, written to recall the Middle Eastern roots of Christmas. As a track by James Whetzel, it sounds more like you imagine it was supposed to sound. This Seattle sarod player and International Fountain DJ makes holiday music feel both ancient and fresh.
