As long time readers of these pages will know, we’re huge fans of roots music. In many cases those roots are planted firmly in the UK and international folk and country scene, but occasionally we’re drawn to roots of a different kind.
‘Goddess’ is a single out now from songwriter Natalie Indya West and vocalist Sunny Andrea. Primarily a pop track, the single is notable for drawing on the traditions of Indian music.
This Bollywood infusion makes for a refreshing take on the pop genre, and while it may not be taken from the traditions of old English music, you can’t help but respect the traditions it is drawn from on another continent. A single worth of your time and attention.
