'Smoke' is the collaborative project of accomplished Mumbai composers, producers and musicians Ashutosh Phatak and Dhruv Ghanekar (better known as "Ashu and Dhruv"). The result is their studio album Smoke Signals (Blue Frog Records, 2008), a twisted, futuristic vision of India in different languages. Traversing time, space, cultures and instrumentation, Smoke Signals successfully and sensitively brings together an impressive variety of musical styles including Western symphony, bebop, Sufi rock, Indian classical, catchy pop, traditional thumri, electronica and blues - the natural, organic result of each partner's musical evolution.
