TEN VOCAL RAGAS TO A DISCO BEAT
LIVE TRIBUTE to Charanjit Singh, hosted by Bombay Connection
Many people refused to believe it: an 1982 LP recorded in India by a Bollywood musician, sounding like modern ‘house’. Since its rerelease in 2010, Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat has gained cult status. Its maker, Bollywood session musician Charanjit Singh, set out to translate ancient Indian classical Ragas to the modern synthesizer and in doing so invented house music along the way.
Three years after Singh passed away, Bombay Connection presents a tribute to his 1982 album. With the help of two masterful Indian classical artists and vintage Roland synthesizers, they are bringing the album back to its original Indian roots. Vocals - Ambika Jois / Tabla - Niti Ranjan Biswas / Synthesizers & live mixing Johanz Westerman / Concept - Edo Bouman, Bombay Connection.
