Bombay Born Ashwin Batish rocked the airwaves with his debut album Sitar Power 1 in 1986. This album drew rave reviews for its innovative stance and as one of the pioneering albums in the Worldbeat genre that successfully fused the classical sitar music of India with rock. Sitar Power 2 follows in the footsteps of its predecessor but stretches out further and blends North Indian classical music with Samba, Jazz, R&B, Country, and Surf! The end result produces some very diverse and rich combinations with the special Ashwin touch!

"I cannot describe the happiness I felt upon listening to this wonderful music. Ashwin is not just an incredible sitarist but also a phenominal composer. My favorite tracks - Cerebral, Misty and Surfing With The Sitarman! Couldn't find it anywhere but here on Amazon. Highly recommended! A+++"
This guy rocks!

"No regrets here :) Heard this music on the radio and had to have a copy. I wish Amazon would put some samples up for everyone to check out. I've had this CD for almost a year now and I rarely fail to play it for everyone I meet. I am not a big fan of the slow drawn out classical style sitar music. Sorry :( But this is right up my alley. Plenty of classical touches in here though. The thing I like most is that I found I could relate to the sitar better now that I have been listening to this concoction. Great rhythms and terrific melodies!"
