Product Description

BBC Review

Having taken three years to complete, it is no surprise that Niraj Chag's debut album is a contemplative and accomplished journey of sound.

Along the Dusty Road evokes a cinematically scoped composition and in fact evolved as a side project alongside the niche Niraj has carved composing scores for TV, film and theatre.

In the album-titled opening track, electronica, tabla and deep bass fuse with the spoken lyrics 'she drank from the sun!she understands the whispering of the trees'. Haunting and evocative, it sets the scene for the 45 minute dream-sequence that follows.

In "Khwaab" (Dream), Swati Natekar's vocals soar over hypnotic rhythms and piano. A Hindi poem about the highs and lows of life's journey, "Khwaab" stands out as the album's most beautiful track.

For the most part, Along the Dusty Road is as meandering as the title suggests, though the sound of Kathak is introduced to "Kanya" while "Ghar"'s uneasy electronica wanders an ever so slightly darker path.

Religious Qawwali collides with spluttering electronics in "Allah Hoo" and it is here, with a more obvious culture clash, that we hear Niraj in exciting, relatively unchartered territory.

Emerging from London's late-1990s 'Asian Underground' Chag's Along the Dusty Road recalls Nitin Sawhney in his Beyond Skin and Prophesy heyday. The album travels a familiar road along which the gentlest sounds are layered and woven, creating a rich peaceful refrain that'll be welcomed by all fans of Chill with open arms. --Rahul Verma

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing and different 4 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is a refreshing change and deservedly enjoying massive support across the asian network at present. Nihal from Radio 1 describes Khwaab as " One of the most senuous, soulful and beautiful tracks I've heard since joing Radio 1" - I couldn't agree more. Along The Dusty Road is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulfull, haunting, beautiful 17 May 2007
By mks
Format:Audio CD
Every song in this album is beautifully put together. Niraj spent three years to complete this album and it shows. I rate this album better than albums from Nitin Sawhney.

Niraj Chag is a true artist. His music has depth and emotion which leaves you wanting more. A sign of a true artist is when they can relay feelings and ideas without words.
