In 1982, Charanjit Singh released 10 Ragas To A Disco Beat, combining traditional Indian melodic structures with the then-new Roland TB-303 synthesizer that later became the basis for acid house. Now 73 and with a extensive career in Bollywood behind him, Singh has been recast as an electronic icon after an acclaimed re-release of the LP in 2010. Challenging the traditional view of Chicago as ground zero for the hugely influential acid house genre, Singh has since been taking the album on the road. At Body Actualized Center, a yoga studio that moonlights as an experimental venue, Singh will use entirely hardware, including his original 303, when he plays the album in full.
