3 stars As one might guess by sheer power of deduction, this is the second part of Akasha and follows the first instalment of Aka moon's adventure into Indian Music. There will be at least two more albums after this one (Ganesh and Elohim) but this is the very apex of their research without losing their personality/soul (something that the German group Embryo could not avoid while venturing into ethnic music) and does it ever work out great at times on this album. They even revisited their Rebirth works for this one - re-adapting it to this formation. The three Indian guests (a wind player , a percussionist and Mrudangan player) are obviously given their share of spotlight but the star is Fabrizzio Cassol especially in the writing/composition dept. I personally enjoyed First Tchai and Eclipse.
