Indian Bollywood Meets World Dub
This compilation CD of Indian music covers a period from 1962 to 2008, and features a diverse collection of Indian artists.
A few weeks ago I was in a local Starbucks getting mochas for the family when I heard this CD playing over their sound system. Someone else had asked about the music and both barista and customer expressed their liking to the music. A second time going into another Starbucks, and the same sort of barista/customer exchange happened, with the same praise for the CD and music.
Third Time’s The Charm
On a third occasion while visiting my oldest son at a Starbucks near UC Riverside, once again the music was playing over the sound system, and I finally was convinced that I needed to buy this album, and lo and behold there was one copy of the CD waiting for me to purchase!
“Encompassing classic fi lmi offerings, electronica from the Asian Underground and gorgeous vocals from Bollywood icons such as Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar…”
And I’m quite happy I bought this one, and this is coming from a person who is very hesitant to buy new CDs for the collection. If anything, I’m trying to reduce my collection to only those CDs that are must-haves.
A Diverse Representation of Indian Music
Being that I’ve always wanted to own a CD of music that represented a diverse selection of Indian Electronica, Trance, Dub, Underground and “gorgeous vocals from Bollywood icons such as Asha Bhosle and Lata Mangeshkar”, I was happy to have come across this CD.
“…these selections reveal how the sounds of India impact and intertwine with music from around the globe.”
