RE: Weird Question
Not quite what you were looking for, but something similar with vocals;
check out Sheila Chandra on the Realworld label...

Subject: Weird Question
I was eating in a 'Hinduish" style restaurant recently.
They were playing a piece of music that was sort of a combination of Asian
and Middle Eastern in scale and instrumentation. The melody flowed nicely
over the top of what was essentially a one chord loop with various
instruments playing the notes (and extended notes) of the chord. Nice
melody on top.
I asked the manager who the group/artist was. She didn't know. The music
was on a tape made by a friend of the owner.
I know this a real long shot, but I wonder if anyone might have an idea of
a group or artist who plays this style of music? Middle Eastern scales
with looping chordal background. The piece was contemporary sounding.
Sort of like a B-Tribe from the Middle East.
