Possibility of underground in Delhi.
Ok, I’ve just created a BeatPort account. For a sole purpose of downloading the subContinental Bass album, featuring a selection of best bass heavy Indian electronica. “this compilation is the messenger of a movement” says Generation Bass blog, and I say -I knew it will come, but it happened way earlier than I expected
Here’s what I’m taking about:
But there’s more than this to say that we’re about to observe the birth of Indian underground…
My friend He Ra is doing an amazing thing both in Delhi and in Bombay. He’s teaching slum kids how to breakdance in his Tiny Drops India Hip Hop Community Centres. Nothing much needs to be said about it – simply check out the link and look at the video below:
Graffitti culture is growing strong as well, there are workshops and a facebook page committed to it.
Oh, and I almost forgot – there’s a superexciting project called Bant SIngh Project, where the modern electronica meets the genuine Punjabi rural Rebel. (You can download the whole thing and remixes for free from the website!)
I guess, I was mistaken.
