World music has never sounded as electrifying as it does in the quick-strumming hands of this dynamic duo and their chemistry, which has set the global charts on fire throughout the 1990s and is perfectly captured on this no-holds-barred live recording. A very clear, intimate sound and minimal distortion helps bring the cross-cultural acoustic alchemy of Strunz (from Costa Rica) and Farah (from Iran) to glorious life. They blend seamlessly and stir up a gypsy magic that's wild, crazy, and a helluva lot of fun. Key in on "Selva," "Bola," and "Heat of the Sun."
