Thats why Im absolutely ecstatic to come across Putumayo World Musics new CD, India, and book, India: A Cultural Journey, to hold me over until I visit again. India includes an array of the countrys musical assortments, featuring one of my favorite songs, Tere Bina, cowritten by the man behind the award-winning Slumdog Millionaire songs and newly minted Academy Award holder, A.R. Rahman. Showcasing soothing numbers by Bombay Jayshree as well as Rahmans upbeat tempos, the collection proves a great escape and taste of Indias best.
Putumayos new book a beautiful ensemble of over 300 photographs and travelogues exploring Indias landscape, food, and culture is also another way to visit (or revisit) the land. Travel enthusiasts wont be disappointed.
Both are now available at Borders and amazon.com.
