Remembering Charanjit Singh, Bollywood Synth Guru and Unlikely Acid Jazz Pioneer

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments





Charanjit Singh was a Bollywood-veteran keyboardist and multi-instrumentalist, not a dance club DJ. But he has been called an “acid jazz pioneer” for his early 80s electronic transformation of Indian classical music, the LP Synthesizing - Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat.

Sadly, Singh passed away this past Sunday. On this week's show we'll hear an interview recorded last summer with Charanjit Singh and Dutch DJ and Producer Thee J Johanz, Singh's collaborator on recent live performances. And we'll enjoy highlights from their July 27th, 2014 Lincoln Center Out of Doors performance.

Hey! @Ike: Went to that Jersey City St. Anthony’s fest. The food wasn’t bad, the potato pancakes and pierogi tasted no better/no worse than the same stuff you can get elsewhere. So hey.
