This podcast episode provides some samples of music from a group in India. Sartu, a member of the class during fall 2008, identified an artist that played music typical of traditional Indian and Hindu traditions. Several of the songs fit better in the category of world fusion since they include several music traditions. If you are interested in the music, go to the radio station tab in your iTunes account and select the "International" category. There are several online radio stations playing traditional and contemporary music from India.
