The words "lokkhi terra" is a phrase used in Bangladesh which refers to someone who is very beautiful, but ever so slightly, and rather cutely, crosseyed.
The point being, sometimes what seems to be a strange mix, can actually totally make sense, whether it's Cuban rumba with Bengali folk, or Afrobeat played on Asian and Latin instruments, or Brazillian Samba with Indian classical. We in Lokkhi Terra feel that the process of mixing which went on 150 years ago in places like Cuba and Brazil are actually happening again now here in Europe, except on a much grander scale.
