A composition specially dedicated to the winters of Delhi 🙂
This track offers a fusion of Indian and Western folk sounds and rhythms. The composition attempts to depict a typical winter-day in Delhi, the National Capital of India. From ambient pads and percussion to the beautiful sounds of Santoor and Sitar and the Punjabi Dholak beats, the track offers a wholesome experience of a New Age fusion of traditional and urban Indian music.
“Delhi Winters” is internationally available for visual-media usage and can be procured from Transition Music Corporation, USA.
