Chutney Music

Babla and Kanchan were an Indian husband-wife musical group, best known for their legacy in chutney music and Desi music genres. They performed together for almost forty years, until Kanchan died in 2004. Originating from Mumbai, India, their music is well known through the world, especially in countries like Canada, United States, Trinidad, Guyana, Netherlands, Mauritius, Suriname and UK.

Babla Orchestra : Babla created the moniker  'Disco Dandia' around mid-1970s, which picked up steam as a movement, rapidly within the next few years. Early 80s saw him tour the world and become a star bollywood name in India. A pot-pourri of musical styles, syncopating with a large number of live instruments, modernized via synthesizers, drum machines, electric guitars and choral voices. It would be an understatement to say that this ' disco induced desi ' as a legend, would influence thousands of  younger musicians in the 80s and 90s. Pressings of this album have become incredibly rare over the years as they were never seriously collected or preserved in India.
