Maati Baani

Music: Maati Baani

Time for a Midweek Music Break, yes?

Here’s a cool duo called ‘Maati Baani’, which means ‘Language of the Earth’. The musical couple, Nirali Kartik and Kartik Shah, is based in Mumbai. They work with musicians from all parts of India as well as from all over the world, as this playlist shows. There are many Indian fusion bands out there, but these guys just have that rare, special spark and exuberance. Take a look.

Their music is more than just fusion experimental. It’s got such spirit and layers too, I think, because it is rooted in the Indian classical music traditions, yet stretches easily and wonderfully to accommodate many different influences.

Also, don’t miss their song ‘Tore Matwaare Naina‘ (Your Beautiful Eyes) featured on Storyacious. Very cool story behind the song and how it came together.

Note: Their latest, ‘Funky Pawa‘ isn’t in the above playlist just yet, but I expect it will be in the near future.
