Amazing! This is very akin to the American 1980s btw — I’m all for this recent change in your taste 😉

Identity crisis — welcome to the club!! lol, seriously though, a lot of Bollywood music is being westernized, and a lot of hip hop and r&b are going the other way (the tabla becoming a standard instrument in many rap videos is a prime example).

It kinda throws a wrench into the whole Indian-American identity thing, especially as it relates to music
