Everyone has heard of the concept of East-West fusion music. On Elephant Power, MC Yogi, an alias of Dum Dum Project's Sean Dinsmore, turns the concept on its head, offering a fresh, trendy take on the mantras of some of our big name chanters. First of all, the music in Elephant Power contains rap music. Positive rap, that is… the lyrics are all based on Indian deities and lore associated with them. Secondly, the music features common sitar, tambura and tabla arrangements blended with hip-hop beats. Finally,on Elephant Power, MC Yogi samples music from some of the mantras of Krishna Das, Jai Uttal, Bhagavan Das and others. Bring all these elements together and the result is a very original album that was influenced by Western urban pop music, with a focus on Hindu themes.-
