“Their arrangements take full advantage of the improvisational nature of both cultures’ music, giving short shrift to neither. Traditional raags and taals form the basis for tonal and rhythmic exploration. Eastern and Western instrumental timbres mix well, never sounding contrived. Shrivastav and friends prove once again to be masters of world fusion”
