Delhi's Indian Ocean reached their peak with 2000's Kandisa: the album was a hit at home and also brought the group international acclaim. With songs like "Ma Rewa", the band infuse traditional Hindustani vocals and tabla with modern sounds—delivering a breezy, cascading acoustic guitar riff and jazzy bass line that feels at once foreign and totally natural. On "Hille Re", those guitars delve into freewheeling Tropicália melodies, proving Indian Ocean scoured the globe for musical influences, with no small degree of success.
