Six years ago, record producer Julian Futter was given a pile of old 78s. He knew nothing about them apart from the fact that they included music derived from the Jews of Iraq.
These songs were later released in a celebrated CD called Shbahoth. However, included in the pile were a few records from Mumbai — fascinating to listen to, says Futter, but not enough in themselves to make an album.
