Are you one of those entranced by the strange mix of musical genres in Buddha Bar series? Did you know that this is one of world’s favourite music albums? Claude Challe (originally from Tunisia) and Ravin (from Mauritius) created that popular trance and dance album. Claude and Ravin who met each other in a party in Paris ended up DJing at a bar in Paris called Buddha Bar. They combined their musical influences — house, ambient, north African and Asian to create a distinctive genre. Their music became so popular that patrons, including Madonna and Princess Diana, asked for tapes of their music. They finally cut their first album in 1999. The duo never looked back since then.
