Customer Reviews

The best band to come out of India

Writing a review about Indian Ocean - and specifically about their best album isnt easy. Because Indian Ocean's music isnt easily categorizable into a known genre. Indian Ocean is a band out of New Delhi, India and over the years have built a niche, fanatical fan following. Their music can be best categorized as a passionate extrapolation of Jazz, Rock, Indian Classical, Indian Ethnic put together over lyrics in every imaginable language. The track Khandisa for e.g. is sung in Aramaic - the language of Jesus Christ. Ma Rewa - is a song about the river Narmada in India - again sung in a tribal dialect. 6000 characters is too less to describe their music. Actually words sometimes are inadequate. If you want to sample an album where every track - and I mean it - every track moves you from within -spend the $10.00 to buy this album. I have very eclectic taste in music - ranging from blues, rock, world, hip-hop, classical (both Indian and western) - and I can safely say - there isnt a better album I have heard in my 32 years. Susmit's guitar and Aseem's vocals will weave you into this world - a world far away - a world away from the daily mundane. Buy it! And I know you'll buy the other albums on your own.

Seriously good music

If you are looking for something that is oriental but more trendy than being classical or folkish, get this one. It is almost free from language barriers as well...

Interesting chants...

Compilation holds a lot of trivia in it and thats not about the brilliant music. Kandisa, the title song, is sung in Aramaic, language spoken by Assyrians during time of Jesus Christ. Inspired from prayer in Syrian chuch this one is top song of the album. Ma Rewa is a tribute to river Narmada, which according to tales is considered to be the river that purifies Ganga every year. In short brilliant lyrics combined with awesome music. Worth every penny.


Genre: Indian Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Indian Ocean are the biggest underground success in India. A cult band in its own right, the group has amalgamated Indian folk music with Western rock, the bandmembers denying any limitations to their personal craft that might arise due to the demands of hitting the mainstream. Indian Ocean have been savored by their listeners, and their small yet perfect body of work has made the experience of their music totally delicious. Indian Ocean started in 1984 as an instrumental duo with Susmit Sen on guitars...
