After first traveling in India in 2005 , Tikki Masala was inspired by the deep flavors of authentic Indian classical music. in he's productions he blends together sounds of Indian classical instruments like Sitar, Tabla, Santoor, Sarod, Flute, Tanpura, Harmonium and Vocals ... with beats, synthesizers, drums and percussion. Recordings made across India from Bhajans, Kirtans, Mantras, street musicians, fellow travelers, jam sessions, concerts, nature and temple sounds are mixed together with psychedelic hypnotic electronic sounds, rhythms and bass lines.
After some time the music evolved to world Beat, tribal, ethnic, Downtempo, Native Beat, fusion, dance music with influences from all over the world. He is playing a lot of he's creations at ecstatic dance events.
The interest in dance became more present, when he discovered Ecstatic dance and other forms of dance, and found that dancing was so beneficial for the personal, emotional, physical and spiritual development.
