AllMusic Review by

This collection is all over the map, quite literally. Rather than present Celtic or modern harps only, it ventures into Africa, Eastern Europe, the Mideast and other exotic locales. The music is likewise rich and exotic, tempered only by the traditions of its area of origin and the imagination of the players. Much of the music is celebratory, indeed danceable. But the sheer variety augurs against its setting any mood. Adventurous but unfocused.
