Seattles Manooghi Hi takes the music of Heart, Soundgarden and Bollywood films, mixing it all up in a bag with some incense and potpourri. The product is what is known as Indian-pop or Hindi-pop ã rock •n roll infused with the essence of India. Manooghi Hi vocalist Mehnaz Hoosein seduces like a bilingual belly dancer, while the band bashes out proggy-jams that will seriously open your Chakra. Manooghi Hi also features a face familiar to Eugene audiences ã percussionist Jarrod Kaplan of Hanuman, Trillian Green and Taarka. Manooghi Hi plays at 9 pm Friday, March 18, at WOW Hall. $8 adv., $10 door.
