AllMusic Review by

The aim of this unusual CD is to bring three totally different spiritual music traditions together on a single recording; the CD features the great American shakuhachi player Ronnie Nyogetsu Seldin, the Zimbabwe musical prodigy Forward Kwenda on the mbira, and the renowned Sundanese singer from West Java, Euis Komariah. So mesmerizing that the only thing to really say is this: Run to your record shop and get it right away! Listeners are treated to a wide-ranging journey from one end of the world to another. The booklet gives detailed information about the musicians and their music. Simply magnificent from beginning to end.
