3 stars This is third album by Italian supergroup gathering (former) members of Banco and PFM as well as trumpet player Lester Bowie. The musical style reveals more a kind of ethnic world fusion combining mostly folk-ish influences with some elements of jazz every now and then. Rocking moments actually can hardly be found on here but they managed quite nicely to merge all these traditional and ethnic influences with modern ones.

Instrumental piece and opener Morgos has a rather captivating atmosphere especially due to Lester Bowie's trumpet and changes to a more celtic sound in its second half. During the following tracks arabic tunes are alternating with indian ones or both are combined together with electric guitar as in Sahasrara in the Sky. Most of them are kept all instrumental apart of Nel Tempo with Francesco di Giacomo and Soneanima, a very melancholic one sung in Sardic dialect as I read somewhere. All songs are very nice and it's not a bad album I'd say. On the other hand probably as well not that interesting for a Progfan.

Very good album in ethnic fusion and recommended for fans of this style but in general not an essential one in Prog!
