One of those hard to describe musical mash-ups. A marvelous mix of cultures and sound featuring vocals, sax, piano, sitar and tabla. Layers of Indian classical music, jazz riffs, and the Persian poetry of Rumi. Each artist is at the top of their game and they achieve a wonderful balance of sounds and styles.|
*1. A 20 minute suite w/varying tempos and melodic lines. Excellent solos from all make this almost hypnotically good.
*2. Mostly slow, then picks up. Gorgeous blend of India & Jazz.
3. Slow with quiet yet powerful vocals and a delicate beauty.
4. Nice sitar opening, lovely poetic vocals. Slow, then picks up.
5. Slow and very quiet. Whispered poetry, muted instruments.
*6. Fast tabla then a fabulous ensemble w/strong energy.
*7. Upbeat drum & flute (?). Watch for sudden ending
