3.0 out of 5 stars For advanced listeners .................., 27 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Mounqaliba (Audio CD)
This latest effort from Ms Atlas carries on from where the impressive Ana Hina left off. It is good I think but not as accessible as that CD. It is far more subdued than Ana Hina was and interspersed with "evocative interludes". It is also far more lavishly orchestrated . One of the best tracks, the joyful Taalet even uses a complete string orchestra.

I am told that inspiration was drawn from the writings of Rabindranath Tagore and understand that the songs are somehow connected, a song cycle if you will. If that is true the liner notes should have given more explanation.

The interludes,especially the spoken bits do not really work for me. Track 7 Batkalim proves that point but is also an exception. At the start a Barack Abama quote works beautifully . The strings swoop and swirl and the track also contains some great but unobtrusive electronic effects.
Then however at the end some dude starts rabbitting on about the monetary stem.

Not one I'll play as much as some of her earlier stuff.
