The Lost Souls by Niraj Chag
While there have been many Indian/electronic fusion CDs recorded, The Lost Souls stands out by its sultry, mystical and magical sweetness as well as through its minimal use of electronica elements. While the guest vocalists make these tracks shine, they are perfectly balanced and accented by guitars, classical strings, harmonium, tabla, flutes and electronic instrumentation. The lyrics are a mix of original and traditional songs sung in Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Braj basha, and Classical Indian sargam.
The liner notes are beautifully designed with ethereal photography and
poetic translations of several songs. While mostly upbeat, the album
has a good mix of tempos and intricate arrangements that would work
well with a yoga practice.
