AllMusic Review by

The Shyam band's hallucinatory versions of Indian film tunes are a truly magnificent example of the extraordinary co-optation of a brass band by Asian musicians. De Souza is having kittens where he is, but this combination of faintly maniacal horns and Indianized percussion (executed with a lot of technical chops, so you know they mean every assonance) is plainly and simply irresistible.
