Album Review
Reviewed 2007-10-18 
Oud, violin, perc & some vox in on Israeli folk-styled tunes. Various other instruments chime in on random tracks. Some tunes are elegant, almost courtly – almost medieval in their composition, while other tracks are nearly avant jazz. Play any track,

1. Midtempo, swirling Middle Eastern sway. Picks up near end.
2. Recorder & strings, elegant, lovely, melodic w/that medieval air.
3. Upbeat perc/strings, almost belly-dancish w/a bit of jazzy solos.
4. Tinny, Asian-sounding strings. Mid/upbeat w/gongs.
5. Midtempo w/strings/perc melding together. Gets almost trancy.
6. Starts slow, picks up. An avant-blend of dark percussion/strings.
7. Warm, swaying midtempo dance w/that touch of bellydance.
8. Relaxed and flowing w/that hint of jazz to the solo bits.
9. Downtempo w/an Asian feel. Strings, gongs. Stately & graceful.
10. Slow, dramatic, kind of spooky. A very cool, dark sound.
