The past decade has seen some huge changes in the flavour of music coming out of India. No longer is it restricted to Traditional Classics, Bhangra, Filmi, Bollywood, the music now incorporates R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop, Folk, Jazz and Latin genres.
Fading out are the coy and innocent women, playful men, formation dances and all things bright and beautiful, instead we have east meets west.
Take Peter Cat Recording Co, their name taken from a Tokyo Jazz club, whose music wanders through Gypsy Jazz, Bossa nova, Bollywood and Space Disco.
Their debut album ‘Bismillah’ is due for release this summer along with a UK Tour. But first check out their new single from the album ‘Floated By’.
