England isn’t only about bangers and mash and The Beatles and The Stones; it’s about curry, too. In this week’s edition of Saturday Morning Music, we’re keeping with the London Olympic theme and taking a look at another side of England’s music scene. Nitin Sawhney is an Indian-British artist that is considered to be a pioneer in music with his many influences ranging from south Asian, to jazz, hip hop, and flamenco.
This first clip is from NPR’s World Music page which I would so highly recommend putting into your favorites list. Here you see Sawhney’s talent of blending Western and Asian styles.
Here is The video to ‘Distant Dreams’ by Nitin Sawhney featuring Roxanne Tataei. A bit of latin influence here to spice up your weekend.
Then there’s this jazzy ditty, “Journey”
Do you have any favorite British artists that have a world music flair? Share them in the comments below so we can all take a listen.
Have a great weekend everyone, and enjoy the music!
