Fellow music addicts … Its that time of the week again, the next episode of the Dewarists – a new original series. Part music documentary and part travelogue, the show features inspiring musicians collaborating to create original music while traveling to locations across India.
This week, from the lush green hills of Panshet, to the bustle of Pune, Episode 4 sees the union of two of India’s long-standing classic rock icons — Parikrama and Agnee. Adding flavor to the collaboration is the lilting voice of acclaimed playback singer Shilpa Rao.
Bombay Black was a collective of musicians and bands formed in 1999 in Bombay (not known as Mumbai yet). Featuring a spectrum of electronic, rock, fusion, vocal and jazz elements, this collective created a genuine ruckus in the indie music circles of India circa 2000.
Produced by Lindsay D, Samrat B, Paresh K & Randolf C, these two albums remain to date as the most progressive ventures taken up to represent the underground subculture brewing in Bombay. Influences of acid-jazz, drum&bass, trip hop, post-rock and ambient melodic stints can be heard on these songs as much as unique hybrid forms concocted locally.
