Indian music

Guest dese manz hatin

Can you recommend me some good Indian music? Preferrably instrumental (but not necessarily). I basically only know two albums of Ravi Shankar.

 

Thanks m8s.

It is known that traditional Indian music uses Additive Rhythm, as opposed to the Divisive Rhythm used in Western music. However, I'm having trouble finding Indian music that really uses Additive Rhythm. Any help?

Nice one, Tontonz.

Sounds like you should check out Kalyanji Anandji.

Check out the album "Bollywood Bloodbath". It's Bollywood music (the good kind) from Indian horror movies.

Pukka subject :ok:

 

Always loved Indian music but never never got round to getting into it, probably because I don't have a scooby doo where to start. I'd ask a few Indian lads at work but boy do they have a bad taste in Indian music (you know that real cheesy male/boyband poseur bollocks). Ergh!

I've been studying Indian music (sitar specifically) for going on 9 years now. This is my teacher's teacher, and the founder of our style of sitar, Ustad Vilayat Khan. I consider him to be the most accomplished player of all time. But I suppose I am a bit biased. Just unparalleled ability though...

From an Indian musician's perspective, Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat is actually great raga form. It sounds alien compared to most other Indian music but really it does follow the same melodic structure (Minus the drums and basslines obviously).

This is an instrumental album of classical Indian ragas by U. Srinivas, recorded live in 1989.
