LATIN MUSIC HAS MADE A HUGE CROSSOVER TO THE ENGLISH SPEAKING WORLD.
BUT NOW THERE'S ANOTHER EXOTIC SOUND TAKING MAINSTREAM AMERICA BY STORM.
THE INTRIGUING SOUNDS OF INDIA AND THE MIDDLE EAST ARE STRIKING A CHORD WITH STING, BRITNEY SPEARS, AND GWEN STEFANI AND OTHER HOT STARS.
TAKE A LISTEN.
STING, MISSY, AND SHAKIRA'S MUSICAL STYLES MAY BE DIFFERENT.
BUT THEY'RE ALL ACCENTING THEIR SONGS WITH THE SPICY SOUNDS OF INDIA AND THE MIDDLE EAST.
i think american audiences are not exposed heavily other cultural music. so anytime they here sounds that are different it intrigues them.
THAT INTRIGUING SOUND CAPTIVATED VIEWERS OF SALIMAH'S INDIAN MUSIC SHOW ' RAWSHNEE'.
NOW AMERICAN MUSIC FANS ARE TUNING IN.
BUT -- JUST LIKE PUNK AND ELECTRONICA -
- THIS FRESH SOUND TOOK OFF IN ENGLAND BEFORE CROSSING THE POND.
in england there is a huge south asian community and in the late 80's they developed there own indian music
it was maybe a spiritual sound a mystical sound it was a beat that nobody had heard before.
its something that just sparks then you start dancing you start moving
D-J ROBERTO COSTA WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TO BRING THE UNDERGROUND SOUND TO MIAMI BEACH AT 'THE FORGE'.
*cg ROBERTO COSTA D-J
(( "I don't understand the lyrics either, but the rythym is so contagious, like i said before it's so sensual, that everybody got in the move and the groove because not fast, not slow, it's good pace, like funk, and everybody loves it." ))
SO DO GWEN STEFANI AND MISSY ELLIOT.
THEY'RE MARCHING TO THE BEAT OF AN INDIAN DRUMMER IN THEIR SONGS.
in missy elliots video, you'll actually see timberlin pretending to play the indian drums or the tabla
NEWCOMER STELLA SOLEIL EVEN TRANSLATED A TURKISH SONG CALLED 'THE KISS' INTO AN AMERICAN HIT.
AND STING FEATURED ALGERIAN
SINGER CHEB MAMI IN 'DESERT ROSE'.
IT'S NOT JUST THE SOUND THAT'S HOT.
AND MANDY MOORE ARE TAKING NOTE OF THE STYLE
'AND' THE MOVES IN THEIR VIDEOS.
SO ARE CLUB GOERS, WHO SAY, 'IT'S NOT THAT HARD' -- REALLY.
(( "It's very much in the bottom of the hip movement;butt to:, you just move with it." ))
(("look at these beautiful women. Of course i'm going to get into it too. You know, it's very sexy." ))
((it's so liberating, it's so sensual, it's just sexual. I feel totally uninhibited when I hear Indian music." ))
