Trained in classical Indian percussion, award - winning Trilok Gurtu's performances are anything but traditional, exploring jazz, funk and Latin beats along with Indian rhythms. Trilok makes Eastern music accessible to Western audiences by bringing the exotic sounds of the sitar and the tabla to the mainstream. His latest album. The Beat of Love, spans the musical continuum from Bhangra electronica to juju soul, Afro - Asian funk to raga-pop.
