"In true Persian musical tradition, this trio lifts the idea of improvisation to new heights and opens doors that at times seems taboo. None the less, it is their technical mastery that overcomes less than well grounded forays in mixing so many divergent ideas of rhythms and "voices". In fact there are too many "voices", for a lack of a better word, which compete for carrying each piece.
At the end, it is nice to hear these "jazz" inspired efforts, but one is left a bit wanting for the delight of unexplainable contradiction of free but bounded impovisations demaded by Persian musical tradition.
This is definitely an excellent light background music for new comers who can't really handle the sublties of true tombak music."
Saw them live - extraordinary

"First off, I have not heard the album in its entirety. I did however see this trio perform live recently and I was truly astonished. Not only did they manage to completely shatter my understanding of what a drum like the Dumbek can do, they did it in a graceful and humble way. I suspect that the album will not fully live up to their rythmically enlightening shows, but I assure any drum lover that they are not to be missed."
