Description : After the abolition of slavery in the Caribbean, Native American forced laborers arrived who brought a different culture with them to the West Indies smelter. The main element that they brought with them was their musical identity. East Indian wage workers came mainly from the Indian subcontinent to grow sugar plantations primarily in Trinidad and Tobago, Suriname and Guyana.
This sample library includes two major musical subgenres that have appeared in the history of Creole musical innovations in the West Indies, both of which are the result of the presence of East Indian immigrants in the Caribbean.
Chutney music arose from the folk music of Bhojpuri. The harmonium, dhantal and dholak are used as the main instruments. This traditional chutney sound is the traditional form of the original and organic expression of the Indian diaspora in the Caribbean. Chutney melodies and rhythms have evolved over the years to adapt to changes in technique and taste, while at the same time moving forward with new traditions in the carnival industry, creating the Chutney-Sok cross genre. However, Chutney still retains the berserk rhythms of the Dholak, combined with melodic rhythms and the soothing hum of the harmonium, as well as traditional melodies and arrangements. In your hands is a library of samples and loops of genuine dholak, dhantal and harmonium. Vocal samples are also included to help bring atmosphere to your work.
Tassa Drums appeared in North and Central India. The main instruments used are the dhol or bass drum, the Caribbean equivalent of Nagar, known as the cutter drum, and the jhanj cymbal. Tassa’s mesmerizing rhythm has become synonymous with triumph on the twin island. The foundation of all traditional Indian weddings and celebrations, Tassa can now be easily adapted to any audio production. Its mesmerizing effect can be applied to any percussion ensembles and ideas.
