Taranga freely translated from Sanskrit means 'colourful waves of joy and enthusiasm'.
Multi-instrumentaliser and composer Prem Joshua is known for his talent and sensitivity in merging the ancient Indian with contemporary Global in his own unique way. Over the last decade with an impressive collection of albums to his credit, his name has become almost synonymous with the term, 'Indian Global Music'. Expressing an even deeper side of his vast musical vision and accompanied by outstanding musicians from India, in this album he taps into a new flow of powerful yet intimate compositions.
Prem Joshua's music has the rare quality to transform any music club into a temple. G. Myers, dj, musician and writer, New York USA.
Is Prem Joshua an Asian musician playing to the west or a western musician playing to Asians? It does not really matter as one thing is for sure: he is the new sensation of the world music scene! His music captures both the true spirit of the Indian classical tradition and the hypnotic laid-backness of urban jazz and lounge. C.H. Lob, The edge magazine, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
