The cultural marriage of musical identities can be a complex and sometimes bizarre fusion of musical styles and customs. This meditation-yoga-world-new-age creation essentially showcases a western take on Indian music. The music has a trance-like quality to it, but it may be too indulgent for some with several tracks lasting over 7 minutes.
What I get from this album is acoustic nature co-habiting with modern music technology. This guy is a highly regarded handpan player, and his ability certainly creates some interesting hooks. I also feel a sense of new age hypnosis as the album plunders textures from the all over the world.
This experimental worldbeat album certainly sounds original. There’s a relaxed, chill-out beach vibe, with great rhythm and interplay between the folk roots and electronic beats.
