Shri Durga
Six Degrees

The follow up to Krishna Lila focuses on Northern Raga style Indian music. This one relies slightly less on instrumentation and more on vocals and devotional chanting. But far from being a studied recreation of classical Indian music, some of the tracks feature modern, trippier elements such as dub, electronic percussion and treatment of traditional recordings with delay-type effects. There’s also some nice audio verite included in the mix. Ustad Sultan Khan guests here, as well as others. Both this album and the previous – Krishna Lila – have companion remix albums that are also worth checking out.
