On October 15, 92YTribeca and Nuyorican Poets Cafe will present Nisha Asnani, a masterful songstress who infuses jazz and funk melodies with the vocal prowess of a bygone era.
We sent her the 92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A to learn more about her media and culture diet. But how does she disconnect? “Yoga. I practice a lot of yoga; it’s my sanity. I turn my phone off and for a couple of hours force myself to remember that I exist outside all of my obligations and connections.”
Where do you go for news when you start your day?
I watch a re-run of the “The Daily Show with John Stewart” and “Colbert Report.” Just to keep a sense of humor about it all.
What are your favorite websites?
TED talks! I love them, I will often listen to them at work. Hulu – I’m a junkie for old episodes of “Arrested Development” and “The Office.” I wish I could say I was cool enough to be up on the blog scene, but the truth is, the most of what I know comes from my offsite experiences. I live in the East Village of New York, and if there’s any place in the world that can keep you informed, entertained and curious, this is it.
