In reply to: Bhangra rules! posted by txilar on July 24, 2002 at 16:51:17:I agree about Bhangra (my favorite: Aankh Nachdi) and the
Shankars...both very good. I would also recommend looking into some
of the indian film music. If you want to listen to music without
buying, check out:
Make sure you register...it is free.
: If you have a local Indian store, check out the music section and
: just look for some bhangra, or even as them for suggestions.
: is easy to find online as well. (link below) It is a fascinating
: of traditional Indian music with deep deep bass beats. It is found
: (primarily in non-traditional settings) mixed with anything from
: hiphop, jazz and reggae. Very exhiliarating and wide awake music.
: something calmer, Ravi Shankar is excellent and his daughter
: is turning out to be quite a protege. Sisters Lata Mangeshkar and
: Asha Bhosle both have outstanding music behind them and their
: 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
: of his music.
: : Forgive me for the OT'ness of this, but I've heard several folks
: : discuss this before, and I'd thought perhaps I could get some
: : guidance.
: : I'm interested in getting a few heads' up about who might be some
: : good Indian musical artists to listen to. I don't know any
: : names or songs - I've heard a few things I've liked, but have no
: : as to who or what they might be. I tend to like techno-beat
: : Anyone got any ideas?
: : As always, very much appreciated in advance!
: : Jenna
: : who hennaed her hand tonight
: : 'cuz she's got a new job and it's cool at last to do it >8-D
