Chalo! India: A New Era of Indian Art

The new wave is here, ok, it's been here for a while but while we've been looking towards China, India has come into the light with seriously great works of contemporary art.

Incredible grooves from the Indian film scene -- mod little numbers that are a fair bit different than most Bollywood work that usually shows up on CD! As the title implies, the work here is more in a nightclub mode than a funky one -- and the tunes are a great blend of romping rhythms, electric guitar, and quirky vocals -- all wrapped together in an extremely playful way! The tunes here almost remind us a bit of some of the Japanese soundtrack work we've been stocking from the 60s -- especially in the stark sounds and dramatic use of instrumentation -- and the package here provides some great references for this under-discovered music, by offering up beautiful images from the films, and a wealth of helpful notes! The whole thing's tremendous -- easily one of the best Bollywood sets I've seen -- and titles include "Kati Patang" by RD Burman, "Gumnaam" by Shankar Jakishan, "Kismat" by OP Nayyar, "Loafer" by Laxmikant Pyarelal, "Bluff Master" by Kalyanji Anandji, "Ek Phool Char Kante" by Shankar Jaikishan, and "Hamara Adhikar" by Chitragupta. (Expensive, but an amazing package as well -- very heavy vinyl and cover, with full images throughout, even on the inner sleeves!)
