A great instrumental album with a lot of variety. Actually a great piece of percussion by a master in the trade. Bikram Ghosh is the son of tabla maestro Pt Sankar Ghosh and the undoubted quality of this ground breaking percussion is there for all to see.
The album starts off with a track called "Rhythm Speaks" which gradually builds up in feeling and emotion leading to a great piece of percussion and a great opening for this album by the tabla played for Anoushka Shankar. Other highlights are "The Language of Innocence" - a feel good song with all the vocals done by young, and very talented children with beautiful innocent voices. "Gangotri" is my favorite track on the album - taking 8 minutes of slow careful build up for the scintillating climax. Directly after this is "Tandav" with a reed flute piece within it that takes you directly into a fairy tale.
Simply a must have for people interested in this genre of music.
