AllMusic Review by

A fascinating meeting of Persian and Indian musical and cultural influences. Iranian musician Kayhan Kalhor, North Indian virtuoso Shujaat Hussain Khan, and Swapan Chaudhuri playing the kamancheh (spike fiddle), sitar, and tabla, respectively, met in New York for the sessions that led to this album, a melding of related but separate musical traditions that embrace vocal music (courtesy of Khan) as well as instrumental music into a mesmerizing whole.
