A wonderful 3-set disc from Coke Studio Season-3 featuring music composers Amit Trivedi and Hitesh Sonik. Both compose music for Bollywood films. What is different & unique about this music is the fresh, new sounds presented in a innovative style. It is a blend of Indian roots music with traditional Indian classical music and global musical influences. You can hear a riff from Malian blues, or an old forgotten Indian folk tune or an old Middle Eastern percussion riff in these tracks. |
And yes, the name is derived from Coca-Cola, which is the main sponsor of the show in South Asia.
