Rough Guide to Indian Lounge

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Ah, here's a question: just what is "Indian Lounge" anyway? To judge by this Rough Guide, it's a very broad definition and covers anything that might be Indian-inflected, or performed by someone with a connection of sorts to India -- which can very wide-ranging, indeed. That's evident by the cuts that bookend the disc, an instrumental soundscape from new age artist James Asher and a singer/songwriter piece by Karen David. In between those two there's some interesting material, whether it's the Bally Sagoo track, which reworks a Bollywood classic with some nice bass and the aid of a young singer, Gunjan, or the very classical vocal stylings of Ajoy Chakrabarty.

Indeed, this albums zips all over the place. A laid-back Apache Indian is followed by the deep strings of Bombay Dub Orchestra, for instance, while the mix & match music of Niraj Chag goes into the gorgeous slide work of Debashish Bhattacharya. In many ways it's Indian music for Western ears, not too alien, and often with synths and beats to make it more familiar.
