As we navigate the challenges of the 21st century, there's a group of musicians that are directing one ear to the past and the other toward the future. The origins of East Indian devotional music are lost in time, but a new generation of Westerners are dedicating themselves to updating it for the present.
Combining Indian instruments and the meditative traditions of raga and devotional song with electronics and studio magic, they're producing new hybrids that take us to exotic soundworlds, while soothing the nerves and enriching the soul.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, an hour of Indian devotional music created by western musicians, on a program called PLANET INDIA 2. Music is by TIM WHITE & JOE PAULINO, RASA, DAN BLANCHARD, BENJY WERTHEIMER & DAVID MICHAEL, and AL GROMER KHAN.
