This kind of rhythmic Indian rap you can especially hear with One Nation Under A Groove â€“ pop/world songs with lyrics in English â€“ and blended with drum-machines and keyboards and much more. Unique new pop, actually! Many listeners says, that Andersens voice sounds beautiful like David Bowie/Bryan Ferry.
