Reviews

This is a five-star, can't-miss record: beautiful, exhilarating, thought provoking and continuously delightful. The percussion instruments are particularly well applied, with attention not just to the beat but the very sounds and moods created by the varieties of drums. As with all Purnima productions, the sound quality is absolutely astonishing, making the music that much more enthralling.”
