No not a mashup or remix – a new (well 19th century?) form of music – Chutney!
Embarassing name, but basically the music made by Indo-Carribean people in places such as Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana working as indentured servants (British Empire!) in the 19th Century mixing Soca beats with with traditional Hindi or Bhojpuri songs and Bollywood…as if Bollywood’s songs weren’t booty-shakingly infectious already…
Something about it reminds me of Cumbia also…and even some of the music I hear at my local Portugese restaurant played live – crazy beats, crazy speed, cheesy synths and mad lyrics.
Oh and they love accordions, mad accordion music ROCKS:
Is it me is the more recent Soca-Chutney fusing not only with ever-present MTV-style Rn’B productions but also reggaton’s beat and aggression?
