This album is the seventh in Nascente’s range of extensive “Music & Travel Guides” under the

travel taster for anyone planning a trip to each exotic country featured. DJs and journalists who have
travelled extensively in the country pick their favourite world music, old and new, from those countries
featured. Alongside their musical selections, the compilers/travel writers have written extensive 40-page, 8,000 words+, mini-travel Guides to partner the music filled with professional travel photography from the Lonely Planet and Corbis agencies. The Guides feature the experts’ “inside tips” on where to hear
the best music in key cities covered, as well as maps and useful facts and figures for the traveller
planning to visit there.
This 30-track compilation highlights Nigel Williamson’s long-standing love affair with Indian
music. Indian music has long been popular in the west since the Beatles in the 60s and those on the
hippie trail in the 70s adopted it and opened it up to the rest of the world. The western world continues
to be fascinated by the spirituality and unique sound of Indian music and this compilation explores
mainly the most popular style known as Indian Classical music. From the distinct sound of the sitar
being plucked to the rhythmic crescendo from the Tablas, it’s easy to understand why this is regarded
as music to take the listener on a path to spiritual enlightenment...
