Ever tire of the same old ‘ghissa pitta’ Bollywood music? Ever think that, gosh… I wish there was a channel I could flip to which played the best tunes from South Asia and the world that wasn’t commercialized beyond belief! Did you ever need a soundtrack for a time when you needed some time to yourself to escape into your mind and reflect? Well – we have just the cure for what ails you. The Curry Smugglers Show!
Curry Smugglers is a show that began in September of 2009 as an alternative choice to other podcasts and shows available in the south asian/desi arena out in the world. Fed up with the classifieds ads, DJs and RJs talking over music and endless repeats of old Dilip Kumar movie songs; the fab duo of Sachin and Paresh took it upon themselves to launch a brand that caters to everyone’s tastes and manages to satisfy all listeners. Their main focus is on remix and club productions, but once in a while they’ll do a show around Lounge, Rock and Romance.
Curry Smugglers has become synonymous with what’s hep and cool in the desi scene for music. Never ones to back down from a challenge, the Smugglers take it upon themselves to showcase talent from various parts of the world and give their take on Bollywood and Hindi/Urdu music. Add to that the ability to pick eclectic tracks out of obscurity and play them on the show; then throw in a 20 minute non stop high energy music set and you get one hell of a musical hour.
They let the music do the talking and are one of the only shows that will invite artists for a no holds barred tete-a-tete about their music, upcoming ventures and state of the industry today. Armed with a growing network of DJs, producers and artistes, Paresh and Sachin also chat and connect with their fans on a personal basis. These gents are primed to get really big in the upcoming year. Are you ready cause season 3 of the Curry Smugglers starts on Sunday May 23rd and you should dive in headfirst and smell that curry!
