A captivating musical masala featuring mesmerizing vocals and gentle beats.
Putumayo World Music presents India, a collection showcasing India’s rich musical variety from traditional and acoustic music, to Bollywood and electronica. Album includes a recipe for Zarda Pulao.
India’s thriving popular music scene—an adjunct to the country’s immense Bollywood film industry—is highlighted on this collection. The love ballad “Tere Bina,” from the 2007 blockbuster Guru, was written by acclaimed film composer and Oscar winner A.R. Rahman.
Rahman took home the awards for Best Score and Best Original Song for his work on Best Picture “Slumdog Millionaire.” “Tere Bina” also features Chinmayee, the award-winning female playback singer (an artist who records the songs that actors lip-synch). Rajeshwari Sachdev’s “Maavan Te Tiyan,” is another hit Bollywood song from the film The Perfect Husband. Album includes a recipe for Zarda Pulao, a dish of Sweet Saffron Pilaf with Nuts and Currants.
