“Babaji Bob Kindler is still playing the same Indian-influenced music that made his last album, Tiger’s Paw, so exciting. Kindler sends long, elegiac cello lines arcing over strummed autoharps and propulsive tabla rhythms from Gregg Johnson and Daniel Paul. He’s joined by Sulubika, whose flutes tease and seduce the melodies, intertwining and trading off with the cello. Kindler’s Indian chamber music at times recalls the instrumental fire of John McLaughlin’s Shakti, but with a stronger loyalty to mood and melody.” – Billboard Magazine
“The music on that album comes from another place; a different dimension.” – M.J., Hawaii
