Music for Crocodiles Narada 2005
Born in Hendon, London, UK on 21 July 1973, of Tamilian origins (South India). She often sings modernized reinterpretations of traditional South Indian Carnatic kritis (much to the dismay of traditionalists; think disco versions of gospel songs). This is one by Thyagaraja: "Idi Samayamuraa"
Meaning: O Jewel of the solar race! This is the most appropriate time to fulfill the promise you had made me. O Subjugator of the arrogance of Kaliyuga! One with the majestic gait of an elephant! Kali Purusha has an infernal plan to stage a holocaust wherein human beings will be sacrificed at the sacrificial rites of pseudo-faiths. To bestow your compassion, this is the right time.
