ALBUM REVIEWS

the recording possesses a similar magic to that present on Ry Cooder’s ‘ethnic’ collaborations. There’s an air of spontaneity throughout and, unlike some ‘classical’ Indian music, the compositions don’t seem to go on forever. The kora playing is suggestive of a Celtic influence, and at times – when the flute and kora gel – some of this could be mistaken for a Gaelic slow air. A rich, regal sound, ‘Forest of Bliss’ is a listening delight.
ROCK ‘N’ REEL

India’s Ronu Majumdar (flute), Tarun Bhattacharya (santoor), Shib Shankar Ray (tablas) and Ravi (kora) on an equally atmospheric, gentle and spellbinding blend.
