from pakistan is great. his nephews rizwan-muazzam qawwali are incredible too.
Thanking you kindly, will check all of these out.
Could I add Kishore Kumar - Golden Collection
Mukesh Sharma - S/T
R.D Burman - Unforgettable Memories
and second Finders Keepers

I'm going to India for four months (hence this thread, if that isn't too much of a cliche) so it's all about the iPod. I might get both, but I'm thinking a trip to Burma is a little risky...

Cue replies about it not being *authentic* - and it's not, it's an eastern-themed dj mix of mostly-western stuff that includes a lot of bhangra as well as Bowie and Nitin Sawhney - but sod it, it's fun. The Indian Ropeman reworking of Sunshine Of Your Love = instant win, even if it wasn't then mixed into Bhangra Knights. And it does have Nusrat Fateh Ali Kahn on it (albeit the ubiquitous Massive Attack remix of Mustt Mustt), as well as a couple of appearances for Rizwan-Muazzam Qawwali...
Rough Guide have an "introduction" compilation to Indian music.
He plays Indian slide guitar. Luvly stuff. Or my mate Niraj Chag - http://www.last.fm/music/Niraj+Chag

another suggestion- dhoad gypsies of rajasthan. they were wicked at the barbican this year. couldn't believe they were doing street fighter yoga flame stuff indoors. nice singing and percussion.
