To say that innovation is Rahul Sharma’s middle name would be an understatement. With every new project the ace santoor player only seems to keep re-inventing himself and redefining his sound. Testimony to this, is Rahul’s latest album “The Rebel” released on Times Music.
Termed as the first Santoor Rock album, Rahul transposes the santoor from a serene, often calming instrument to being edgy and at times defiant. Only a true master of the santoor would dare experiment with an album like this and Rahul Sharma has already proven his worth by collaborating with top world music artists including Kenny G. The Rebel is available in stores now across India.
Renowned Egyptian percussionist Hossam Ramzy in his decades of collaborations has worked on projects with the world’s biggest artists. But none more exciting than his latest album “Rock The Tabla” with the megastar of Indian & World music – A.R. Rahman. Rock The Tabla is a world music project of epic proportions with other special guests like Manu Katche, Billy Cobham & Omar Faruk Tekbilek. The album epitomises fusion music unlike any other you might hear. A masterful blend of Middle Eastern beats by Ramzy and keyboards by Rahman, Rock The Tabla is our recommended dose of great music for this weekend. CDs are available only on Times Music
