Here is a boldly original fusion experiment from the virtuoso Indian instrumentalist who designed his own slide guitars so they could match the intricacies of the sitar. Now, Debashish Bhattacharya has expanded his range with a set that includes vocal work from his teenage daughter, Anandi, tabla players who worked with Ravi Shankar, and collaborations with very different guitarists from around the world.
Wild World is the second studio album by British indie pop band Bastille, released on 9 September 2016. Wild World the follow-up to Bastille's debut album, Bad Blood, which has sold more than four million albums worldwide alongside 11 million singles. The new album retains the vivid, filmic songwriting of its predecessor, but pushes the GRAMMY®-nominated U.K. band s unique sound in new directions. Lyrically, too, it s a leap forward.

It's a collection of 19 songs on the deluxe edition that sees Bastille at their boldest and most daring.

The album's exotic and meditative qualities may attract fans of both international and new age music, though there is perhaps little crossover appeal for Ma's classical devotees.
