Indian Vibes, when Indian meets pop music.

Indian Vibes, when Indian meets pop music.


About the show

Playing tracks by

Paul Weller, Roxy Music, The Who, Steely Dan, Kula Shaker and more.

This one came from strange thoughts after Ravi Shankar’s death, I wanted to do something about fantastic music history’s accidents, cultures’ mixes, when indian’s music came to Europe and influenced many bands. Couldn’t start with something else than the Beatles’ Norvegian Wood, first pop song released with sitar (wiki). Try to sing “Norvegian Wood” with a slight touch of Indian feeling, it works perfectly. Also Thought to that brilliant electric sitar solo on Steely Dan’s “Do it again” song etc. And then Anoushka Shankar, influenced herself by Flamenco on her last record… etc. Of course I thought to Paul Weller’s “Indian Vibes” and his friend Aziz Ibrahim “From Lahore…”, the sitar part on Oasis’ “To be where there’s life”, etc. Didn’t want to do a specific Indian’s music compilation, it’s about the meeting between pop and Indian’s influence. Also thought to our imaginary Shangri-La, somewhere in James Hilton’s “Lost Horizon”. Enjoy. Happy Xmas.
