After first traveling in India, Tikki Masala was inspired by the deep flavors of authentic Indian classical music. Tikki Masala blends together sounds of classical Indian instruments like the Sitar, Tabla, Santoor, Sarod, Flute Vocals and Tampura ... with beats, synthesizers, drums and percussion. Recordings made across India from Bhajans, Kirtans, Mantras street musicians, fellow travelers, jam
sessions, nature and temple sounds are mixed together with psychedelic hypnotic electronic sounds, rhythms and bass lines.
The music genre can be discribed as Indian Flavored electronic Fusion Music or Indian Electronica with an ethnic world fusion touch.
