Jeet Thayil

Amrutha: Early on, what did your musical influences look like?
Jeet: My earliest musical influences were shaped like the seventies: wide, deep, ocean-sized.
Amrutha: Who were/are your literary inspirations?
Jeet: It changes all the time. Today: the bible (because I’m in Goa), Donna Tartt’s new novel, The Goldfinch, and the poems of Georg Trakl.
Amrutha: What is the genre of music you are inclined to/play?
Jeet: I am disinclined to genre. I have poly-amorous tastes in music.
Amrutha: If you had to choose between your music and your books, what would it be?
Jeet: That would be like choosing between food and drink, or the devil and the deep green sea.
