    Love this “Hollywood meets Bollywood” score. Exquisite work by traditional Indian artists…male and female vocals, tablas, esraj, etc. Where can I find the album credits and learn more about these very talented folks??? Kudos, TM.

    Yes, please tell me where I can find the local indian music found in the film. I am particularly interested in the segment with the serving woman as she brings food to Ms. Smith.
