A mixture of the East (India) and the West (USA) from Indian composer-guitarist Arjun Sen. Smooth and jazzy drums combine with acoustic bass to provide a traditional U.S. jazz backing but this is mixed withsitars and exotic Indian flavours to create a wonderfully inspiring and groovy feelgood smooth jazz track with an Indian feel. Melodic, refreshing, soothing and invigorating all at the same time.
This smooth and soft world-fusion track uses the traditional Indian instrument Sarangi, which is a bit like a violin . The traditional role of this instrument is to play in unison with the vocalist, but here the Saranghi has come into its own right, mixed with a downtempo electronica beat, tabla, tamborines and soft pads. A silky smooth, exotic and beautiful world ethnic track, highly suitable for travel, journeys, holidays and vacations in exotic and far-away places. Slightly wistful or sorrowful, but also comforting and hopeful.
An exotic and atmospheric Indian track featuring authentic Sarod (similar to Sitar) and Indian flute over the soft, floating chords. Dreamy and slowly swaying rhythms with table, acoustic bass. Indian wood flute joins in the later parts of the track.
An exotic, haunting Indian vocal track sung for us by highly renowned Indian female singer Vidya Rao, whom we feel privileged to have worked with on this track. Her sorrowful singing/chanting in the alaap is as atmospheric as it is emotional, and is accompanied by a clean jazz guitar, joined by jazzy drums and bass at around 1 min 45 secs. Alaap literally means introduction and it is traditionally used by an Indian singer who goes through many permutations in the notes of a raag finally resting on the tonic and then nods at the tabla player to set the rhythm. A smooth blend of the traditional and the modern, of the East and the West. Great for use in travel and adventure, chill-out and exotic moods.
A blend of the East and the West, this smooth and exotic World fusion track features Indian flutes, clean jazz guitar, an oriental style drone and, after a long-ish intro part, a downtempo chillout drum groove with Indian tabla joins in. Gentle, atmospheric, warm and appealing - this is a great track for relaxing holiday or travel footage, adventure and journeys to far-away lands, as well as for spa, treatment, relaxation,
