Right now, I'm the child who doesn't know how to ask.

If I'm interested in exploring Indian music, particularly rhythmically and harmonically complex Indian music, are there particularly good places to start? Composers, bands, movements/scenes, whatever. I have no preference between classical/religious/film/pop music—at the moment, I know tragically little about the musical landscape, other than that it's gorgeous and really draws me in. I tend to be drawn to frenetic, intense music, but that's by no mean a need for me right now. I just need help figuring out where to look.

Music to go with reading Rushdie's "Midnight's Children"?

Recommend me some music to go along with reading Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children? While reading the book, it's occurred to me that I like and am interested in Indian music, but don't really have any, and don't really know any artists to look for other than Ravi Shankar. I think I'm mostly looking for the more classical Indian styles, as opposed to the pop/Bollywood stuff, but some of both would be nice maybe. Can anyone suggest other performers or albums? Bonus if they're easily available through Amazon or iTunes.

Channeling George Harrison

Musical Tourism: I'm traveling next week to Delhi for business, but will have a weekend for shopping, sightseeing. I'm a nerdy musician and would like to bring home a meaningful musical souvenir from India. Preferably an instrument I can play. What should I get and where should I get it from? [more inside]

drummers complaining about tuning. lol.

Half remembered anecdote from a music class I took long ago: "A great German percussionist(?) travels to India in the 20's(?), and on returning says that the trip was a complete waste of time. Not only were the musicians always out of tune, but - most infuriatingly - they were always out of tune in exactly the same way!" Can anyone peg an attribution onto this story? [more inside]

Beatles Better than Bejewelled Self-Dribbling Basketballs!

Who produced this psychedelic video for Within You, Without You by The Beatles? Is it part of some larger project? Where could I find it at higher res (how would I search for a torrent)? Where could I find the interesting mix of the song used in it (which samples a drum break from Tomorrow Never Knows).

Rap/Dance music w/arabic influences?

So I'm a pledge at a fraternity here at Cornell university, and we're throwing a party whose tentative name is "Rock the Casbah". We're hoping for a mid-eastern/indian feel to the party, from decorations to music. Anyone know some good arabic/indian dance music or american rap music influenced by the sounds of the mid-east/india? [more inside]
