Until a month ago, I had never heard of band Ranj Singh and The Discriminators. But when Singh contacted me to review their newly released debut album, “Found A Way Home,” I felt very lucky. For the first time in a long while, I realized that I was literally listening to — and almost touching — the “soul” of an artist.
Canada is famous for its cultural tapestry. Here, every person is free to grow new types of trees from unique seeds. And this is exactly what Ranj Singh and The Discriminators have done with “Found A Way Home.” By bringing together and merging Indian music and western folk rock into each other, they have created a collection of songs that are both soothing and poetic. Soothing, because Indian music is spiritual in essence. And poetic, because the best thing about folk music is often its lyrics.
