Doob Doob O'Rama 2: More Filmsongs from Bollywood
Film music from India. This collection represents the range and many, many influences in Indian film music. As you no doubt know, Bollywood is the most prolific film industry in the world. Many of the films are musicals, therefore there is a vast amount music produced each year. The best part is that Bollywood film composers have embraced a wide variety of styles from both the west and the east, often mixed together into a single song, to create a musical masala. I heard stuff that sounds like Mancini, Schifrin, the Ventures, Isaac Hayes, or Strauss as well as lots of funky Indian instruments and percussion. I like that this collection lists the films that the songs come from and is broader and less "produced" (i.e. remixed) than the also excellent 'Bombay the Hard Way' collection. They have left in the vocals, which often fall harshly on the American ear but are also frequently amusing or have excellent percussive phrasing. In short, you have before you a musical feast--every track on this album made me smile, and some tracks rule. All Tracks recommended, start with 5, 12, 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 10, 16, 20.
