anyone know any good music by people from / in India?
as in 'Brimful Of Asha' by Cornershop.
It is truly mindblowing. Personally I prefer the Sarod to the Sitar and Ali Akhbar Khan is the absolute master.
Their Live in San Francisco at Stern Grove is awesome. Includes Indian, American and Ethiopian musicians but the tabla is pretty much to the fore with a little sarangi and lots of bass!
if some odd sitar funk from 70's bollywood action films is your thing.
I like AR Rahman and Abida parveen. I have a compilation featuring only ali akhbar kahn and ustad vilayat kahn called psychedelic music of india and it's pretty great.
Know very little about it and most indian music I listen to is streamed off the internet.
