Editorial Reviews

On Cinema, London born and New York raised Karsh Kale balances his Indian heritage with rock 'n' roll, and atmospheric pop for his most diverse release to date. On this, his fourth studio release, Kale works with a talented cast of collaborators including label-mates the Midival Punditz and vocalists Vishal Vaid, Shahid Siddiqui, Anne Rani & Monica Dogra. Once again, Kale has found a way to incorporate his roots into a thoroughly modern context. His first solo album, in 2001, Realize, established the young tabla-playing producer as a major force in the Asian Massive movement , Liberation, was a highly polished, tightly-produced collection that Kale and his band could perform live and Broken English brought hip hop and rock influences into his already eclectic musical mix. Since his last studio album, Kale has released an acclaimed duet record & toured with sitar phenomenon Anoushka Shankar (Ravi's daughter & musical heir) as well as establishing himself as a lm composer in India, where he and the Midival Punditz have forged a successful soundtrack production partnership. In addition, Kale's touring pro file has continued to grow as he has been a featured performer in major festivals around the world catering to everything from jam band to electronica audiences. This year he even had a new composition premiered to critical raves by the prestigious Bang On A Can All Stars at Carnegie Hall's Merkin Concert Hall. Cinema pulls together all of the creative strands in Karsh Kale's formidable musical palette and the result is the freshest, most creative & most accessible record yet from this amazing artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - thank you Karsh April 27, 2011
By Venky
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Brilliant follow up to Liberation and Broken English - thanks much Karsh for the sheer joy (although you should release more albums and come to Houston :))
Loved the mix of different types of music on the album. Mallika Jam is a heady and hard mix that will get you head-banging instantly and take you on a high all the way until Ma, a beautifully composed track reminiscent of "Milan". Sounds of Electric sitars and distorted veena's, sitars and sarods blend mellifluously with the earthy melody and punchy rhythms. But only 13 songs??? c'mon Karsh :D
Brilliant album from one of the most talented musicians on the planet - take a bow Karsh.

Update 26 May 2011
Now that the honeymoon period is over and the drooling fanboy rush has simmered down here is what I have to say.
-Brilliant- and here is the break down
1. Island is like the track#1 from all KK albums - really good but completely overshadowed by track#2
2. Mallika Jam is just so powerful that after about 50 seconds of track#1 you're tempted every two seconds to skip to this track. Heavy rhythms and the veena'ish lead in between is just sublime ... something that I'm sure we'll get to hear in a lot more tracks from other artists going forward
3. Cinema just takes Mallika Jam to the next level ... again the flute is sublime to the point that you don't miss the fact that the leads are not on a traditional electric guitar. And the bass riff on this is highly addictive as much as the vocals themselves ...
4. Avalanche simmers you down slowly and steadily after Mallika Jam and Cinema. The Mridangam is a nice touch mixed in with the break-beats

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have album if you are a Karsh Kale fan July 22, 2013
By Rahul N
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I discovered about Karsh Kale not too long ago and recently also saw his performance in brooklyn. He is a truly talent of a musician. The whole album is so good on music and tunes that it is just stunning. Every song creates a characteristic of it's own. The fusion of classical indian instruments with new age electronic and drum and bass just sets apart a completely new musical experience. Karsh is one of the best to in composing this fusion genre, and he is truly a master on the tablas....listening to them in the songs and also seeing him play them live. Two thumps up! My favorite tracks on the album were Turnpike and Supernova.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album June 14, 2011
By uosman
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
A Great 4 star album. I absolutely love Broken English. The reason was the diversity and excellent fusion on the album. Even rap vocals were perfectly camouflaged. This album is a little monotonous. I found Few tracks like Avalance, Man on Fire and Peekabo forgettable. Man on Fire feels like it was not chosen for Karsh Kale & Anoushka Shankar album and hence filled here (a no-beat sitar track). The opening track ISLAND could have been a great track but i couldn't justify Karsh Kale's "Auto Tuned" vocals, i felt it was pointless. I mean there is enough auto-tune to go around from commercial music to bollywood. Don't need another one.

Now the good. SuperNova is an outstanding track, from synth bass line, tabla, santoor and basuri. A perfect blend, i believe thats the track that says it all. Turnpike is a great track. It is actually a ghazal by Talat Aziz from the movie Umrao Jaan(1981) "Zindagi jab bhi teri bazm mein lati hai". Funny thing is the lyrics are changed to suit the rhythm pattern. Nevertheless, Vishal Vaid as always does an excellent job. Malika Jam is a fun track. Title track Cinema is another gem of the album. Papon's vocals on Absense were perfect for the track. I personally couldn't make out the words 'completely' in the track, meaning not all words were pronounced cleanly in the track. Which also means hindi (the language sung in the song) is NOT Papon's first language and no one in the studio's final recording got into that detail. Again, that does not mean the track is not good. Its one of my favorite track. Ma and Joy are very easy on ears.

I am a big fan of Karsh Kale. So big that i couldn't wait for this album and ordered the CD (yes a CD in this day and age as mp3 at 256Kbps wouldn't do justice to Karsh Kale's music). Broken English for me is his best work to date and deserves a fill 5 star, while this would go as second best Karsh Kale album in my list. Go for it and you will like what you hear!

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal! May 3, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Such a breathtaking and refreshing sound. It gives you a surreal feeling and takes you deep into the world of underground music and yet brings you back into a contemporary modern space with a delectable mix of multiple instruments. Great driving music, great music to chill with and great music to have playing in background in the house. Only Karsh creates music with such diversity. He generates an almost ethereal experience which will attract people of all ages, preferences and cultures. Don't miss Turnpike!

This is the 1st Kale album I've bought (one of my sons already had another 1) and I really enjoy this one. I love the mix that comes from a background of various cultures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece January 6, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a die hard Karsh kale fan since early 2000s and this album is one more addition to Karsh kale's unique genre of music. Each song has its unique identity and the more times you listen, the more you start discovering hidden layers of music/instruments in the song. A true pleasure and worth every penny.

Get some good over the ear headphones, block out the world and immerse yourself into this " Cinema " :-)
