Rupa Marya, lead vocalist and musical director of Rupa & the April Fishes, and a doctor and professor of Internal Medicine at the University of California at San Francisco. While on tour, we sat down together in our studio at KBOO to chat about language, culture and balancing a life between music and medicine.

Rupa recently began her sabbatical from medicine to work on music. Her band has two albums, Extraordiary Rendition and Este Mundo. Catch them on tour and check out their great music!
