The music of New York City-based singer/songwriter Amanda Homi isn’t for everyone, but those who dig some worldly flavor should warm to latest full-length “Till I Reach Bombay.” Homi is of British and Indian descent, and she incorporates pieces of her culture (and many others) into an 11-track release that melds Indian, Spanish, Egyptian, funk, folk and Afro-pop melodies.
