A World of Sound
Featuring a range of folk, roots, and world music artists handpicked by EarthSync and IndiEarth, Sounds of the Indian Ocean takes a sonic journey through shores of the Indian Ocean and beyond. The cloud cast is mixed exclusively by Andrew T. Mackay of Bombay Dub Orchestra, the electronica/live orchestral project of UK based Andrew and Garry Hughes, who blend downtempo electronica with Western classical music and Indian instrumentation.
“We need to learn more about our brothers and sisters around the world and if we can do that through music, then that is truly wonderful”, said Andrew of Bombay Dub Orchestra. Artists featured in the mix include the likes of Ziskakan from Reunion, Business Class Refugees from India/Israel, Mounawar from the Comoros Islands, Bombay Dub Orchestra from the UK, Kingfisha from Australia.
The cloud cast will air on multiple radio platforms worldwide, including Freedom Radio City (IN), Monkey Radio(IN), Luv Asia Radio/The Eastern Electronic Show(UK), Spaces (Johannesburg, SA), Tilos Radio (Hungary), Radio Flote (IN), Roundhouse Radio (UK), My Opus Radio (IN), Chennai Live (IN).
