best indian music store New York 2003 - RAAGA
When you see J.Lo and Adnan Sami together on a compilation CD at RAAGA, the Virgin Megastore of Jackson Heights, you're not stumbling on some pirated bootleg, explains owner Priya Gopalan, who along with her husband started Raaga ten years ago. They wanted to have an outlet that carries all genres of Indian music: Ghazals, Hindi pop, devotional, even karaoke. CDs range from $2 to $13; DVDs $10 to $22. And for newfound bhan-graphiles, Priya recommends Hanji by Bally Sagoo.
