The Revivalists recently performed a career-highlighting set on the main Acura Stage at New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival last weekend. Only a few days later, they learned that their single “Wish I Knew You” hit #1 on Alternative Radio this week and set a new record for most single-week spins ever on the platform. It’s safe to say the NOLA-based septet is on the right path.Yesterday, frontman Dave Shaw and guitarist Zack Feinberg stopped by Paste Magazine‘s New York City office to deliver an acoustic, stripped-down performance of “Wish I Knew You,” along with “Hurricane Winslow” from 2010’s Vital Signs, and “It Was A Sin” from 2015’s Men Amongst Mountains, complete with song commentary.Next up for the band is a performance at The Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, PA (outside Philadelphia) tomorrow, May 12th, before heading to Atlanta for their set at Shaky Knees Music Festival this Saturday, May 13th.

Since its inception in 2003, the South Asia Initiative (SAI) continues the long tradition of collaboration between Harvard and South Asia’s nations. Learning from South Asia and contributing to its development have become vital given the salience of the region in contemporary times. Under the leadership of Tarun Khanna, faculty director of SAI and Jorge Paulo Lemann Professor at the Harvard Business School, SAI has forged links and synergies across Harvard’s Schools and within South Asia, creating a nexus for interdisciplinary scholarship with shared aspirations to build the leading center of expertise on South Asia.This year, SAI has hosted a robust seminar series focusing on themes of social enterprise, urbanization, water, Pakistan, and climate change. Additionally, the Future of South Asia symposium engaged Harvard faculty, area experts, and government officials in discussions of energy and environment, architecture, health, governance, and water issues. SAI’s Mumbai, India, office plays a crucial role in supporting Harvard faculty and students in research, teaching, and field experience. This summer, aided by SAI, 24 undergraduates, 28 graduate students, and three faculty members have been funded to travel to all corners of South Asia to conduct research, perform fieldwork, participate in internships, and pursue South Asian language study.For more information about SAI.
