Saturday, April 21, 2012

Since the "raga-rock" craze of the late 60s, Indian music has been mixed with Western music - with mixed results. On this New Sounds, we’ll hear some current efforts in chamber music, jazz, ambient, and dance music, from the Neel Murgai Ensemble, the Acoustic Mandala Project, Natraj, and DJ Cheb I Sabbah. Plus, music from Indian guitarist Debashish Bhattacharya, who fuses Indian and Western music on both slide guitar and slide ukelele.
