    No, and many Indian artists would bash the person who says only Indians can pay them for their services.

    Yes it is cultural appropriation! If you're not part of the South Asian culture. Just like eating a burrito or practicing martial arts or using chopsticks or playing soccer all were at some point for Americans.

    Cultural appropriation is the adoption of a cultural custom by someone outside that culture. Do it! That's one of the beautiful things about cultural, no one owns the patent.
