If you have a local Indian store, check out the music section and
just look for some bhangra, or even as them for suggestions. Bhangra
is easy to find online as well. (link below) It is a fascinating mix
of traditional Indian music with deep deep bass beats. It is found
(primarily in non-traditional settings) mixed with anything from rap,
hiphop, jazz and reggae. Very exhiliarating and wide awake music. For
something calmer, Ravi Shankar is excellent and his daughter Anoushka
is turning out to be quite a protege. Sisters Lata Mangeshkar and
Asha Bhosle both have outstanding music behind them and their vocals
are just amazing. (If you can find the song Oh Haseena, both
tradtional version and remix are Grrrreat!) For a very reggae
influenced Indian sound, check out Apache Indian, Asha sings on a lot
of his music.
