This original instrumental was written for a request for a theme to a movie soundtrack. The theme was indian/ethnic/asian. The problem was they didn't specify whether it would be a fast or slow track. I chose the former.

My very first ethnic instrumental song turned out to be something really epic! I loved how it turned out and till today, it remains one of my favourite tracks to blast in my itunes. Although it didn't get selected for the movie, I'm sure it will be used someday somewhere.

I titled it, Indian World. The song contains many ethnic instruments, but I suppose the breakthrough for me was in the drums and percussion. Having zero prior experience in ethnic drum patterns, I made this all up. It sounded rather convincing, but professional ethnic rhythm-gurus may think otherwise.

Anyways, hope you enjoy the track.
