This is something I discovered during this year's trip to WWDC. I always love to shop for new music when travelling, and San Francisco offers a few good stores.

Niyaz - a group hosted by the great Six Degrees Records - uses influences from Persia and India to produce great melodic, intense and upbeat music that reaches far from the usual coffee shop Buddha Bar and Cafe del Mar stuff. Read more about the group at the Six Degrees site.
