for best Indian electronic fusion
After first travelling in India, Tikki Masala was inspired by the deep flavours of authentic Indian classical music. Masala in Hindi means ‘mixed spices’. Tikki Masala fuses together sounds from classical indian instruments like the sitar, tablas, Santoor, and tampura with beats, synthesizers, drums and percussion. Recordings made across India from Bhajans, street musicians, fellow travellers, nature and temple sounds are mixed together with psychedelic hypnotic electronic sounds, rhythms and bass lines.
