The Rough Guide To Indian Lounge features some of India's most seductive sounds combined with hypnotic grooves and exquisite chill out music. From the sublime Indian flute and voices of Bombay Dub Orchestra to the mesmerizing slide-guitars of BBC World Music Award winner Debashish Bhattacharya; this is incredible Indian music at its most alluring. In association with the anniversary of India's independence, World Music Network proudly presents this superb collection of Indian melodies, from traditional to present-day.

Pandit (master) Debashish Bhattacharya has developed an innovative three-finger picking technique which lends his music lightning speed and creates entrancing patterns. One of the world's most remarkable slide guitarists, he is one of his generation's leading ambassadors of raga. Ajoy Chakrabarty is a renowned Hindustani classical vocalist and ' Raga Jog - Khayal - Tintaal' highlights his vocal skills and his talent at combining the spirit of both ancient and modern.

The UK's first Brit-Asian male pop star Apache Indian started a small revolution with his bhangramuffin style in the early 1990s. His style is a unique blend of reggae, ragamuffin, hip-hop and bhangra, and he has sold more than 11 million albums. Birmingham-based DJ Bally Sagoo set the bhangra scene on fire in 1990 and he continues to produce some serious creations. Here, his re-working of Bollywood classic 'Aap Ki Nazron', is beautifully delivered by young US Indian singer Gunjan.

Alongside established artists The Rough Guide To Indian Lounge also features the stunning new future promises Niraj Chag and Karen David. Niraj Chag combines Indian classical influences with contemporary, multi-layered beats, and he has worked with Mark Hill (Artful Dodger, Craig David), had two top ten hits in Asia with his group Dum Dum Project and co-written and produced for pop band Liberty X.

'Khwaab' is from Niraj's 2006 debut album Along The Dusty Road. Singer/songwriter Karen David assisted A. R. Rahman in the development of the material for Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's theatre production Bombay Dreams and this track is from her debut album Alive and was co-written by Rahman, a legend of Indian music.

This album also features musicians from other countries - Pakistani rock-ballad star Atif - and a selection of non-Asians such as Malta's Tribali, and the UK's James Asher, who've all caught the East/West exploratory bug. Chilled-out and punctuated with some of the finest fusion, The Rough Guide To Indian Lounge explores the complex musical relationship between India and the West, and represents an array of talented musicians, producers, singers and songwriters, from Bengal to Brighton.
