After â€šMade in TurkeyÅ¡ and â€šMade in GreeceÅ¡, the musical journey through the global club culture aims towards India.
When the DJs in Europe play music with Indian elements (Sitar & Tabla) you see people with happy faces on the dance floor. The
bodies move lithely as if in each of them there lies the hidden potential of an Indian temple dancer. The situation is of course
related to the success of Bollywood movies in our TV and cinema. Also Bhangra style is a steady demand in the international music-
business nowadays and everybody knows Panjabi MC.
If you reduce the current music of the gigantic sub-continent to a few Bollywood-Hits and Bhangra-bangers, then thatâ„¢s an
outrageous injustice. The music of India is as colourful as the diverse people who live in this huge country. Unfortunately one
way marketing of Indian music in the west is almost taken for granted. Though it is not an easy mission, LolaÃ™s World with â€šMade
In IndiaÅ¡ tries to correct the hopelessly stereotyped image. That is why you will find pop, ragga, reggae, twist, rock, funk, dub,
electro, hiphop, râ„¢nÃ™b, indo-jazz-fusion, drum & bass, Asian underground and even Latin on this double compilation; but as
mentioned: all are MADE IN INDIA. Youâ„¢re facing an extremely entertaining mixture, unique in the world.
Of course also the superstars of the Bollywood genre (e.g. Asha Bhosle) can be heard on this packed double-album with 159 minutes
playing time, including as well bhangra-heroes like Daler Mehndi, Shubha Mudgal and Alisha Chinai (also known as â€šMadonna of
In difference to many other compilations we did not take tracks from other 10 compilations to form the 11th one. The search for
the highest quality of the songs is the main driving force in forming this compilation; for example tracks by Nitin Sawhney,
Midival Punditz, Karsh Kale, Bally Sagoo, Bikram Singh, & Achanak indicate the first class quality. Also many newcomers like
Rohan, Bhangra Brothers, JRagam and Major Singh have to be mentioned, as you will hear more of them in the future. If you take a
closer look you will see that even foreigners made it onto the CD: Prem Joshua form Germany, Hakan from Turkey, the Belgian group
Studio Pagol and the Polish collective Masala Sound System. What they have in common is their passion towards the music of India.
So this common feature provided them visas to enter this compilation.
As always each CD of this double compilation creates a very own atmosphere. While the first CD â€šCafÃ© HindustaniÅ¡ mainly invites to
relax, the second one â€šHappy KrishnaÅ¡ aims to the dancing feet. Whoever stays seated while listening to this 2nd CD should be
suffering from some kind of health problems.
This compilation by DJane GÃ¼lbahar KÃ¼ltÃ¼r (Funkhaus Europa, Cologne, Germany) carries this special spirit and charm to let the
breakthrough of popular Indian music in our regions.
