The term ‘Lounge’ is not usually associated with Punjabi music, the general perception being that Punjabi music is loud, rhythmic and energetic. Indeed a majority of Punjabi genres such as Bhangra, Malwai Giddha and others are based on loud drumming accompanied by an innumerable number of instruments; however a number of other lesser known genres have a far gentler feel. Using fewer instruments the objective of these genres is to invoke emotion, create ambience or aid a spiritual connection. This album presents lounge music of a completely different kind, ethnic in its origin, featuring instruments such as the dilruba, vanjali, taus and even the tumbi and harmonium.
