The Darbar Festival was on Sky Arts a few days ago & I learned the difference between North & South Indian Classical Music. I'm NO expert in this stuff but I know what I like, the raga in the North style is just amazing & sounds like Cypress Hill - Illusions done in a kinda "drone" style.
I personally can't get enough of this stuff.

Anoushka Shankar [2016] - Boat To Nowhere


Caught an hour special on the BBC where she is working with Gold Panda, that was quite something to hear.
Sadly Youtube has the whole thing BUT it's broken down into sections but this gives me the tingles each time I hear it & believe me I play her session with Gold Panda several times a week.

PLUS imho she is ssssoooo fit, OMFG I just love her, I bet she can cook the most amazing Curry, looks smoking HOT & you could never get fed uyp of her naked & she plays the Sitar like that, for me that's a perfect woman.

Oumou Sangaré [2015] - Moussolou




Oumou's first album established her as a major star in Mali and beyond. Its title translates as "Women" and many of the songs deal with her experiences as a woman in a male-dominated country.
