Released: May 2001
One of 2001's most thoughtful albums, Salt Rain is a world music fan's wet dream: the eclectic, classically trained Raman creates a hybrid that's about invention, not novelty. Songs like "Ganapati" and "Mamavatu" mix Hindustani and Carnatic influences with jazz and blues, and the hybrid makes genuine sense -- not to mention Raman's voice is an enigmatic revelation.
