Desert Grooves 3
Perfect for afternoons on your deck with cocktails. I’m not exactly sure how to describe arabic sounding music but it has the certain tribal sound that I love. This CD is modern electronica mixed with traditional and its perfect. Since I’ve been on this kick :-), also ordered Tantra Lounge 4, which has more of an Indian lounge sound and some Middle Eastern and also love that CD. Highly recommend the one I am reviewing and Tantra Lounge 4.
Fusing Indian pop and Punjabi folk music with house and hip-hop beats has been a popular pastime for years now, but this collection sets itself apart from the pack by putting more emphasis on the Asian and less on the Western elements. Sure, there are plenty of funky breaks, but Bombay Beats feels less like a work of East/West fusion and more like a showcase of state-of-the-art South Asian pop music than do most similar compilations. All the Asian Underground masses will love this as a matter of course, but those who want an introduction to the best in modern Indian music will find this collection a great place to start as well.
