Genre: World
FCCs: none
Review: a genre-spanning aural landscape of world fusion with shifting influences from around the world loosely based on an Indian raga structure. I find myself on the verge of pinning down a familiar melodic phrasing when it suddenly morphs into something else. All beautifully performed. Check out the inspirations for the pieces on the inside jacket. Just sit back & enjoy the ride.
