Renowned musician Simon Thacker has assembled a team of talented artists for a hauntingly atmospheric world music album that combines Indian and western musical cultures. Perhaps its greatest strength is that it's hard to describe the songs, which are a melting pot of influences and offer up something different every time you listen to them. Those featuring the sublime vocals of Japjit Kaur will stay with you. If you find it inaccessible at first, have patience because the album will reward you in the end.
