Has anybody heard this single?
It kicks ass!
It’s a jacked-up remix of SNAP’s “I got the Power.” I’ve been encountering it on the radio a couple times, and it forced me to spend an hour searching for it on amazon. Well, I found it faster than an hour, I had to spend more time looking for music like it.
One single is not enough. I wanted more of the funky Indian-sounding stuff.
Turns out its Bhangra. This is something that a friend of mine had raved about some years ago, but I somehow had never actually heard. This friend is also into bellydancing, so maybe that’s where she was introduced to it.
Now that so much music is sampled and looped, things can sound awfully mechanical. But the lush organic sounds of the indian vocals and instruments that are so new to me are really exciting.
