AllMusic Review by

Excellent examples of music for sarinda and sarangi fiddles as well as the rabab lute, extremely well recorded on location. As a nice touch, the producer is Kudzi Erguner, a Turkish musician, rather than the usual Western ethnomusicologist (not the first -- Deben Bhattacharya's recordings are remembered with nostalgia -- but still too rare). Brief but cogent notes are included. (69 minutes)
