3 stars I don't know much about this "Indo-Prog" genre, but I'm guessing cultural authenticity is not an especially high priority. Otherwise, you wouldn't record 12 minutes of a sarod player improvising freely using European modal scales while a tabla player pounds away in 4/4 time, and call it a 'raga'. If you want the real thing, bypass this album and get eg one of Ali Akbar Khan's CDs where he plays a single raga for 55 minutes. But if authenticity is a low priority and atmosphere a higher one, then this album is worth a listen, particularly those tracks featuring Cleis Pearce on viola (much more melodic and coherent than her work with Mackenzie Theory) Keith Manning on flute, and the ethereal vocals of Eshia White
