Except with all of them but the organist playing drums.

I don't know, this sounds very Tarkus-y in places. So Emerson and Palmer, I guess.
I guess this is what I'm hearing:
11:39 or so. You're right that ELP don't sound at all Eastern, but I am nevertheless very reminded of them.
My other car is a Tarkus.
Ok, I get what you're saying but I'm getting the ELP feel from the drumming over the Hammond.

Too bad the audio quality is a bit shite, because this is awesome.
There are so many videos of this stuff on Youtube, and it's all amazing. The Ganesha festival in Lalbaug looks amazing, ten days of this stuff.
This isn't even the best video, I chose it because the keyboard sound is so good around 1:00.
I actually like the recording quality on a lot of them, and it's definitely got me thinking again about playing guitar through old-style horn speakers when I start playing shows again later this year. Such a great sound.

Think of all the closet gay sex that going to happen after this show.
I don't get the joke. Is it a joke about the American stereotype of Indians (leaving aside that "Indian" is what, 300 different distinct ethnic groups) dress in a stereotypically gay manner? Is it because this is a genre that's closely a associated with one of the biggest Hindu festivals in the country, so there are a lot of people there which statistically means a lot of gay men? Is it about cultural attitudes about homosexuality in Mumbai (I don't know much about that at all, I'm not trying to be obtuse)?
I'm being completely serious here, I don't understand your joke at all and want to know. Since I don't have any context for the religious aspect of this, it just looks like a pretty good show, replace the keyboard with guitars and it would be like a lot of the most fun shows I've been to.
In conservative societies where women are not allowed to party with men it's just a given that there's going to be some dongs touching in the night.
There was no serious commentary in my comment.
I would have said the same thing about a metal concert with no girls in the audience. I have said as much before. I'm sorry for wasting everybody's time.

Awesome. I went to something similar to this about a year ago. This girl I was sort of seeing just told me to meet her at this dance hall and I had no idea what I was getting into. I mostly just stood in the back and watched, but it was pretty mind blowing. I don't know if it was the best live music I've ever seen, but definitely one of the most fun experiences.
I only recently learned about this specific style, I don't know how old it is. The oldest videos I'm seeing are 2013 but the vast majority are from last year's Ganesha festival in Lalbaug, so I think it might be a pretty recent development. I really want to start a band that ays a bastardized, white boy space rock version of it. I mean, I've already kind of had one or two of those over the years but this makes me want to step it up a few notches with regard to how many drummers there are, and to be more of a hardass about playing some pounding 6/8 beats instead of tired ersatz motorik.
I've been trying to put together songs that this same line of thought too. Kind of a "heavy metal drum circle."
Recruited a willing drummer earlier tonight.
I guess I'm across the country, but I'd contribute Bassoon :)
