Interestingly different
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a good Indian CD.It's different in that there's a few more instruments present than on other Shankar CDs. Besides the great tabla of Allah Rakha,there's flute(Paul Horn) and santoor.Also there's a little more melody here, so it kind of has the feel of "Paul Horn in India"or"Call of the Valley". I like it because it's somewhat lighter than some of the deep,intense,spiritual improvisations that Ravi Shankar is the master of. It is a very pleasant listen."
Raag Multani on this CD is a masterpiece

"This is an excellent CD for someone who is new to Indian music. Having said that, the Raag Multani as presented by the great genius is the best instrumental interpretation of Multani that I have heard - sensuous, spiritual and even erotic."
A pleasure to the ears.

"Allah Rakka's work on this album is great. The last track "Raga Multani" is the best on the disc. The previous tracks are short, sweet, and exciting. It is a good CD."
