Album Review

Reviewed 2003-07-16 
This is not indian-influenced electronic music. This is electronic-influenced indian music. It uses both electronic and classical indian instrumentation, but pulls an electronic vibe into the structure and pace of (mostly) classical indian music, as opposed to the other way around. Check 3, 8!, 10

1. Spoken Intro
2. 16 beat psychedelic tintal, with spoken counting
*3. Awesome!
4. Slower.
5. More dissonant/ fuller drones
6. Cuban influence?
7. Super-short, lo-fi tabla solo
*8. More modern track (hip-hop vs. bhangra?)
9. Hard throat-singing, into quieter plucked strings
10. African-influenced?
