Music review: Delhi – The Underground, Vol. 1 (Assorted Artists)

Posted by Karthik

There’s so much energy and life in Delhi – The Underground, that it may sound unfair to criticize a few and praise others. But, Kapil Srivastava’s incredible guitar in The Journey and East India Company’s vibrant influences in Omo are the two tracks that hooked me instantly. Sawan Dutta’s self-confessed jazz-rock ballad, Virtual love; Aditya Tripathi’s Jhuki jhuki, vaguely reminiscent of early Ali Haider and the funky In or out by Jalebee Cartel are the other tracks that I found engaging. This collection is not ground-breaking, but the effort is a wonderful step ahead for Indian musicians – hats off, SaReGaMa!
