Ustad Sultan Khan is back with another classic interpretation of sarangi music at its best. Joined with Krishna Das an individual i have not come to imbrace musically. But Ustad set him on fire and both burn up each and every track on this glorious spiritual gem. The songs are filled with ustads classic lamented slow soothing playing for about 8min or so with krishna acompaning with beautifle poetry in english and in tongue or singing in tongue (ustad is also a featured singer. Then Krishna will accompany him with an oud or guitar and classical tablas fill the room with glorious harmony. This is a more subdued and slow album not fast and kaotic, very tranquel like a soft water current, perfect for deep meditation. Slow in the way the gopal shankar album on realworld is. This is the best album from ustad ive heard yet, except for the tabla beat science records the live one especially. enjoy
