VARIOUS ARTISTS Sitar Beat! Vol. I & Vol. II (2006/2007)


Sitar Beat! Vol. I & Vol. II (2006/2007)
Psychedelic Indian Music With A Funk Twist

Sitar Beat! gathers together various pieces of music from the 60s, 70s & 80s Indian film industry into a DJ’s mash-up of Bollywood psychedelic, East Indian wailing and cinematic funk with cut-and-paste backbeats and groovy edits. Most of this material was originally released on vinyl back in the day (and includes a few beyond-India oddities like Klaus Doldinger and Serge Gainsbourg), and has since been reinvigorated by modern technology and a long overdue re-appreciation of Bollywood’s colorful contributions to anything-goes film scoring. Lots of Tarantino via Gainesbourg via Morricone via India, though the sound seems a bit distressed. Both I & II are at Amazon.
