After first travelling in India, Tikki Masala was inspired by the deep flavours of authentic Indian classical music. Masala in Hindi means 'mixed spices'. Tikki Masala fuses together sounds from classical Indian instruments like the sitar, tablas, Santoor, and tanpura with beats, synthesizers, drums and percussion. Recordings made across India from Bhajans, street musicians, fellow travelers, nature and temple sounds are mixed together with psychedelic hypnotic electronic sounds, rhythms and bass lines.
After some time the music evolved to world Beat, tribal, ethno, Downtempo, Native Beat, Global Bass, fusion dance music with influences from all over the world.
