Cover Story: Rock On.

A trio of my fave desi musicians (the young ones; I'm not talking Ravi, Shiv Kumar and Zakir), lent their too-cute mugs to the cover of Rolling Stone India. Hat tip, "manish" for locating this desippearance. That's Karsh Kale with the Midival Punditz. Kale's collaboration with the darling of the sitar world, Anoushka Shankar, Breathing Under Water, had a couple of fantastic, pulsating tracks, but fell a little flat overall due to overuse of synthesized sounds, and a case of too much going on which prevents the listener from appreciating the duo's talents. I'm certainly excited about what this GenNext of desi music will come up with next!Photo Source: Rolling Stone India.
