This electronic download of Deepest India from Zero-G is a collection of original vocals, instruments, and orchestras/ensembles recorded on location in India. Exploring human emotion from elation to despair, this library was created for musicians and composers, employing sweet vocals, joyous ensembles, and authentic Indian instrumental phrases. The Deepest India sound library includes 1.3GB of WAV files and Apple loops.
The vocalists sing in the traditional ragas of Indian music, and where possible an attempt was made to translate the raga to the nearest equivalent Western key. However, there's no need to feel bound by the suggested key – it's all about experimenting and having fun!
Vocals were generally sung to 80, 90, 100, 110 or 120 BPM, except for vocal passages where tempo is traditionally irrelevant (e.g. Alaaps, Shers and speech). Extended phrases have been provided wherever possible to keep any lyrical content intact. The complexity of Asian rhythm cycles means that you may wish to experiment with the start point of the samples for the 'best fit' within your compositions. English translations of the vocals are provided in the documentation included in the download.
Most music in India is played in a group context and instrumental ensembles are a traditional feature of Indian music. Classical ensembles generally feature a leading solo instrument such as a sitar, a drone (usually a taanpoora) a main percussionist (for example, a tablachi) and possibly secondary percussion such as a ghara (clay pot).
Orchestration and harmonization, introduced from the West, as featured in the Film Orchestra samples, have added new dimensions to Indian music. A common sight and sound in both cities and villages in India are the wedding bands playing what is commonly termed "street music" using Western brass-band-style instruments.
Folk ensembles featured on Deepest India vary from simple ethnic duos to multi-percussive setups using Eastern and Western instruments.
Deepest India features a great variety of Indian moods and musical textures, and provides a valuable resource bank of loops at 80, 90, 100, 110 and 120 BPM to use and abuse, mix and match with the instrumental phrases, or with other rhythm samples in your collection, or to be generally creative to your heart's content!
