Read "Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan & Michael Brook: Mustt Mustt & Night Song" reviewed by Bhasker Gupta

Singer Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan collaborated with Canadian guitarist Michael Brook on these two outstanding albums in the early to mid 1990s, aiming to reach a cosmopolitan audience by blending his traditional, religious singing style with western production values.

Anoushka Shankar / Karsh Kale: Breathing Under Water

Read "Breathing Under Water" reviewed by Bhasker Gupta

The Shankar family has always been credited for bringing Indian music to the forefront of Western audiences. Although it was Pt.

Following along the same lines, and after two years ...

Indian Ocean: Deep, Vast, Free-Flowing

Read "Indian Ocean: Deep, Vast, Free-Flowing" reviewed by Bhasker Gupta

It's been five years since I first started listening to Indian Ocean. It's hard to believe that greater fame has eluded an impeccable and mature band that has been around for over 15 years with five albums under their belt. Labels are pointless, as the music stems from a rich cultural Indian background combining elements of ...

Jonas Hellborg / Fazal Qureshi / Ustad Sultan Khan: Friends Across Boundaries

Read "Friends Across Boundaries" reviewed by Bhasker Gupta

The delight of writing a review of this album derives from the fact that I've been listening to it for roughly an year now and finally succeeded in getting it autographed from Jonas Hellborg on his recent visit to India. This album is a distinctive, spontaneous collaboration between Swedish jazz bassist Jonas Hellborg, the famous sarangi ...
