Reviewed 2009-04-06 
Not our typical kind of world music, but I thought it was interesting. Monfort makes the guitar sound like a sitar. Some might find this too “new age” but I found it unexpected and quite good. As befits the term “serenades” all are slow and all infused with the spirit of India.

*1. Raga w/didjeridu drone & strings. Mysterious & a bit dark.
2. Flamenco-like trill w/hints of India and the medieval world.
3. Solo guitar part N. Indian raga, part ballad. Lyrical.
4. Relaxed folk, almost Hawaiian solo guitar.
*5. Blend of Indian & Celtic, picks up later. Good finger work.
*6. A didjeridu dones hypnotically while guitar blends rock & India.
7. Solo guitar, a touch of blues by way of Bombay.
