"Talvin Singh is known for his groundbreaking tablatronic style combining Indian traditions and modern European aesthetics. His groundbreaking 1996 compilation Anokha -- Sounds of the Asian Underground was followed by the Mercury Prize winning OK (recently re-released as part of Island's 50th anniversary celebrations). Since then, Talvin has worked and collaborated with and for a vast variety of artists from all parts of the world. Niladri Kumar, a fifth generation sitar player, has an equally fresh, experimental approach to his instrument and is recognized as one of the finest players and most open minded musicians of his generation. Coming together for their first time in 2009, Singh and Kumar combine their deep-rooted Indian classical training with a modern, contemporary perspective to create an altogether extraordinary sound."
