CD Review:

Transglobal Underground CD review by Taiwan Fun
Transglobal Underground
'Rejoice, Rejoice'
by Krishnananda

With an Acid Jazz/Electronica backbeat, Transglobal Underground takes you to an exotic danceable world weaving vocals as diverse as Natasha Atlas' beautiful Egyptian Arabic sound, Tuup's reggae dub flavor, Coleridge's hip-hop funk, and Bapi Das Baul's Bengali mystic nomadic singing.

And that is just the singing.  A good part of this CD is instrumental with electronic and acoustic experiments blending a host of exotic and ordinary instruments, from blues harmonicas to Indian flutes and sitars, with a heavy tech drum machine behind it all.  Well worth the listen, this group has been thrilling dance club-goers in London and around the world.
