Make the Crossing!

"This is Mishra's debut album- and he shows his ability to play the guitar as well as work with sound in a studio. While maintaining cohesiveness, Sanjay explores many tonal and compositional structures; from the nervous and humorous "Killer B's" to the gentle "Manali", Mishra uses experimental effects with classical sensibility to create an enjoyable album."

"There are many varieties that come under this broad term-often in world fusion the convention is that an oriental/eastern musician joins an occidental one and together they blend each others musics-in most cases one knows little about the others music, so it always remains seperate from each other and sounds like that This has proven to be very successful, and there are some examples where this has been done very well indeed. Another more subtle form of fusion is when it happens within the artists psyche as a result of his or training, which is more than one style of music, and in Mishra's case obviously Western and Indian, and to the end that it is internal and flows from within it is more natural in a sense. Here the instruments are not of that much importance but rather what they play-Mishra is an artist that explores this vein of world fusion and I share this excitement with others who own this CD"
