The Rain – Bombay Bairag

The essence of world music remains alive and kicking, thanks to the continuing efforts of indigenous talent Bombay Bairag, a collaboration of two singers – Ashish Ranjan Thakur and Harpreet Hassrat – who owe the name of the band to the spirit of Mumbai city where their music was created. While the typical Western elements are fused here with Indian instrumentation, the sound is much closer to the deep foundation roots of Bombay Bairag’s ethnicity, courtesy the members’ tutelage in Indian classical music. Their singing, and the prominent usage of flute, makes it obvious. Often, though not always, the aim of world music is to find ways to create unity and harmony between Western instrumentation and more earth- and nature-oriented cultures as can be found within India. In time, fusion has become a favorite way for adventurous contemporary musicians to broaden their sound with newly found rhythms, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with it and, even if you may have heard several similar collaborations in the past, this seasonal offering from Bombay Bairag remains refreshing.
