When East meets West, Beauty unfolds.

Posted by Raunak Mahajan on October 11, 2012

Inter-mixing produces the most beautiful results, is a hypothesis that I do not yet consider a universal truth. But in case of music and other arts, it sure does hold true.

In philosophy, a society based on political philosophies of the west and spiritual explorations of the east would be a utopian state. A protest led by Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King would be irrepressible.

I especially love the union of western and eastern music, the sitar being accompanied by a bass guitar or Vedic hymns being sung to western beats. “Govinda” by Kula Shaker remains one of my favorite compositions in this genre. The chanting of the mantra accompanied by the strong background music elevates the listener to a higher dimension. Listen and enjoy!


Would love to hear of other examples where fusion has created magic.
