Ananda Shankar was Ravi Shankar's Nephew and was one of the first musicians to mix Indian music with western styles back in the 1960s.

Ananda Shankar and his Music expertly mixes 70s funky grooves with Sitar and Indian instruments and melodies to create what could almost be a Bollywood soundtrack meets Italian cop movie soundtrack. Along with the fantastic up-tempo numbers, we also get treated to a few lovely tracks that are more on the chilled funky side. Special!

This genre busting 1975 album seamlessly fuses the traditional
music of Ananda Shankar's homeland, India, with the heavy psych-funk of the West, where he'd spent a good deal of time. Featuring the dancefloor killers 'Streets Of Calcutta' and 'Dancing Drums' alongside a handful of mellower tracks, the original, India-only LP has long been one of the world's most sought-after records.
