"In the hands of artists like Indian percussionist Trilok Gurtu or French rocker Manu Chao, global pop can become an exhilarating, even subversive experience through the use of temple bells, gongs..."
DownBeat Critics Poll awarded Gurtu the Winner of Best Percussionist. He was also awarded Best Percussionist in the Drum Magazine Reader's Poll as well as Winner of the Carlton Television Multicultural Music Award and BBC Radio 3's World Music Awards. "We make bridges, not barriers." says Gurtu "This is what the world requires" declares his global universal vision, which includes BHANGRA ELECTRONICA to juju soul, Afro-Asian funk to raga-pop. Worldwide audiences have been enthralled by his compositions, which link subtle Indian rhythms and Indian singing with elements of modern jazz and rock.
