type:
Music
Current Status:

performer:
Talvin Singh
genre:
World

We gave it a B+

From the Asian-Indo-British quadrant Talvin Singh comes Anokha: Soundz of the Asian Underground, a hypnotic sonic stew, not quite ambient, not quite world-beaten, but pulsating with an East-meets-West energy. Mastermind Singh, a London-based producer/sound sculptor/ tabla player who has worked with artists as diverse as Bjork and Sun Ra, taps into both real sounds (his sensuous tabla rumble) as well as sampled and borrowed textures, creating tracks that purr and rattle in a happy, cross-cultural way.
