by the great guys of REBEL UP! check it out, it’s a great listen!



All tunes in this masala funky flavoured mashup mix are selected from over 100’s of cdr’s, video cd’s and cassettes that I picked up on my trip in India in 2007. In modern India, music is part of everyday life on the street, where distorted sounds blast from shops, riksha’s, buses, temples or weddings in many musical styles. Folkpop is the hybrid of old folk music and modern pop/dance made with new digital techniques. The frequent use of vocoder, autotune and other effects give it a culture-clashing sound where old traditions meet the changing modern times. The folkpop mixed here is a mash of Sambalpuri, Oriya, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi, Rajasthani, Haryana and Gujarati dancepop styles. There’s so much more to India than Bollywood. If you look deeper into the local culture of different states, you find a unique sound that follows the same rolling wave allover India. You can also order this mix as a handmade cd-r with nice colourful artwork design, for just 5€ at [email protected]
