Totally sweet fiddle raga. Really, what else is there to say? Flynt's backed up by a dude on tambura providing a background drone, over which he plays an electric violin in a less bluegrassy manner than on, say, his New American Ethnic Music releases. Still, it's compelling, trancy music, with some great dirty, grinding sonorities from the violin. The fact that there's only one melodic instrument means that he doesn't play any conventional solos, either in an Indian or Appalachian mode—mostly it's fairly slow-moving, so if you're looking for something very active, it won't do.

Only one track (41:41 long), all instrumental.
