Here's another of the Humenry records I mentioned earlier. A bunch of synth and tabla-wielding Frenchmen free associating about what "India" sounds like. It's probably no more authentic than Peter Sellers's India, but that's part of why I like it. Sort of memsahib electro jams with what sounds like Fontaine & Areski's rhythm section. When I saw Broadcast on their recent tour, they ended their set with a kind of raga-fied dulcimer number that would fit right into this record.
