Let me be polite here. Attempts at a "marriage" of Western and Indian music has often been characterised by rather turbulent relationship problems and have often created partnerships not always built on the firmest of foundations. Granted the stellar British guitarist John McLaughlin largely "cracked it" on his instrumental based Shakti album, but recall dear Amazon reader the bold efforts of our beloved George Harrison whose huge role in introducing world music was often tempered by some very average Indian based songs on various Beatles albums such as "Love to you" from Revolver. Thus it was with some trepidation that I approached this new EP by current nu folk favourites Mumford and sons, the delightful Laura Marling and the traditional Rajasthani folk collective the Dharohar Project. As it turns out the wise words once uttered by Bob Marley namely "Don't worry about a thing" should be our guide since this collaboration is a triumph.

The three sets of artists met up initially on the tour of India undertaken jointly by the Mumford's and Marling in the the winter of 2009. This was reciprocated in the summer of 2010 where Mumford & Sons and Laura Marling invited the the DP to play shows with them in England. From this activity was borne this sparkling EP. The four tracks essentially comprise some existing songs such as "Devils spoke" and "To Darkness" which are given a radical overhaul and wear new Indian clothes and two more tracks by the DP one of which includes Marling in a singing part. Indeed despite a huge contribution from the Mumford's it is Marling who impresses most. Devils Spoke/ Sneh ko Marg takes her powerful Dylan like opener from the recent "I speak because I can" to hypnotic new levels with a soaring joint vocal and enough power to light a large town.

Stunning work by all three groups of artists. Captures so many different atmospheres in each song. The mixture of folk and Indian sounds really blend well and all three voices work amazingly together! If you're a fan of either musician buy this CD!

Well, the above review is very artistic and factual. And to reiterate, this is an adventurous effort by the artists to blend traditional Indian Rajasthani music with what Rolling Stones describes as 'romantic folk rock perfect for sloshed barroom singalongs'. I've always loved Rajasthani and Bangra music - and so for me this was a nice compilation of background tunes to work away to. However, music is entwined in relativism - and I can understand how for many traditional fans of 'Winter Winds' this album will be a cacophony of clashing noises both starting and ending in disapointment.

My advise is to have a listen to the previews, if Indian music is your thang then you wont be disapointed. And for under £2 you've got yourself a bargain. If you cant sit down in your local Indian restaurant without thinking the music sounds like a gang of hungry meowing cats - then this isnt for you.

Superb 'Live' mixture of multi-cultural rhythms and musical tones.
Really enjoyed the opening track, Devils Spoke, featuring Laura Marling and Mumford & Sons, 2 of the best up and coming indie/folk/pop bands in the world, in my opinion.
Truly fantastic hearing the Dharohar Project, LM and M&S, this really worked!
More please!
