Kayhan Kalhor & Shujaat Husain Khan have put together one of the most mystical and enticing compilations of two eastern styles of music that I have ever heard. The haunting air of the Iranian Kamancheh and the ever melodious Indian Sitar combined with the syncopated rhythm of the Indian Tabla and Shujaat Husain Khan's vocals make for an excellent CD. Every track is worthwhile and will keep you compelled to continue to listen as the trance like feeling of the music brings you visions of Ancient Arabia and Indian.
If you've never heard these two types of music before or are simply interested in exploring them, then this is an excellent place to start. If you are already familiar with this style of music and are looking to add to your collection, then this is defintely a gem to add to your treasure trove.

I expect music to inhabit me, to possess me, and to speak to something I barely understand, and cannot conceptualise. The last thing i want from music is that it should be 'a background' - it must be an experience.

And so it is with 'As Night Falls on the Silk Road'. This skillful and sensitive blending of the Iranian spike fiddle and the Indian sitar, tabla and devotional vocal certainly IS felt viscerally, emotionally. The bent notes of Shujaat Hussain Khan's sitar and unforced vocals, Kayhan Kalhor's kamancheh and the dynamic, full sound of Swapan Chaudhuri's tabla making my heart swell. There are tracks which demand the listener to move and dance under the stars (Snowy Mountains) and others, such as the longest and final track, Traces of the Beloved, which move with ease between still, internal reflection and explosion into unstoppable movement - a perfect balance between the motions of the heart itself, as it pauses and receptively fills with blood, and forcefully expels that blood through the ventricles. Heart music indeed; diastole and systole. Gorgeous.

Ghazal has produced a timeless combination of music that is like
vipassana meditation, recognizing the divinity in all of life. The sitar, kamanche and tabla are for the most part the only instruments. As the mind listens to each instrument, interplay, and create harmonies, an ecstatasy of enchantment arises and creates waves of bliss ... this bliss lasts for hours after listening. If opening your chakras means anything to you, this CD will do it: your heart will expand wider & wider into a state of love for *ALL* of life. You will realize existence is precious. "Snowy Mountain" is my favorite. The music resonates with my very being and makes me very happy. This music is similar to Sufi mediatation music --- it is probably the closest thing to a mystical experience some of us will ever have! Don't hesitate ... BUY IT!
