“Having been deeply involved as an Artist in the South Asian music scene for nearly 14 years, I feel honored and thrilled to be joining the Rukus Avenue Radio family as a host,” says Anita Lerche. “My show “Heart & Soul” will be a smooth fusion of Devotional and New Age Music, with an aim to unite people across borders, cultures and religions through the music.”
