Dehli2Dublin give us a nice new spin on the old Irish-meets-Indian music theme… I like this particular clip (“Apple Jam”) quite a bit:
There’s also a crazy video of them doing a Canada festival with a combination of kathak dancers and jig dancers, which I discovered at Project BollyHood.
The guy in the group whom Project BollyHood mentions, Dave Sharma, has been doing a lot of good stuff. If you go to that MySpace page (i.e., the one I just linked to), give a listen to “Dheere Junglist.” I listened to that several times in a row, and I wanted to hear it again.
Sharma also works with DJ Rekha’s Basement Bhangra, and the first Basement Bhangra album is out today.
I’ll probably write more about all of this – especially Sharma aka Sharmaji – sometime soon.
