indian spirits & caribbean spices
A CD full of Sitar-Sounds far away from indian classic. The music moves between Trance-Grooves and Worldmusic and makes also trips to Latin America. But because of the Sitar as lead-instrument all tracks are sounding very indian.
This CD maybe find in Chill-Out-Rooms of Goa-Parties. To get used to the Sitar, this CD is ideal.
Payuta admits elements of Jazz- and Worldmusic, confronts it with Trance and Rock- Beats.
But it´s the nature of the Sitar-Sound that there´s always a kind of Raga-Feeling, what is often combined with fat grooves.
In a way Payuta has devised the indo-german Sitar-Groove. A brilliant album.
