East meets West in Tony Talwar’s music

Tony Talwar is one of my recent discoveries in the local world music and dance scene in Chicago. I found his music very pleasant to listen to, so I decided to share it with you. Tony is a local cross-cultural DJ that likes to mix electronic dance music with classical Indian instruments such as sitar, sarangi, waja, tumbi, dhol and tabla. Vocals come from a variety of musical styles, including Qawwali, Bhangra, Bollywood and Raag. You can hear a sample of his music in the following link:http://ow.ly/4TZRL. The name of this song is Tabla Raaga Project and comes from his latest CD titled Bhangra Communication.  If you would like to hear more of his music or buy music for this CD, you can do it here.
