Maatibaani is an awesome World Music band that combines Hindustani Classical music with Folk music and International music sounds.
The band comprises of Nirali Kartik (who is trained in Hindustani Classical music) as the lead vocalist, and Kartik Shah as the Guitarist.
Maatibaani just released a new song as a Christmas release that I’m totally in love with.
‘Balma’, a collaboration between 11 artists from across 5 different countries, is so catchy that I have been listening to it on repeat mode. The song truly transcends international boundaries.
The video is full of fun, and the song speaks about how unifying love is (“1+1+1+1 equals 1”).
Oh!! And it also has part of the song in French (Awesome!!). Combining Hindustani Classical with French, along with all the other instruments makes it really funky and foot-tapping.
