  • Credits

    Straddling the line between jazz fusion and new age, sitar master Niladri Kumar creates stunning sound pieces that swell and splash like a slow-moving river over colorful rocks. On the sweet and meditative "Priority," Kumar's tangy sitar lines can sound at times like a nylon-stringed guitar, and on "Yearning," the distortion, reverb, and glitchy percussion add a hypermodern surge of electricity, thus further blurring the boundaries between traditional Indian music and a whole new hybrid genre.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.77) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[H]e sounds intent on fusing new age atmospheres with flowing sitar workouts. It's beautiful music that is reflective and aggressively modern..."
    JazzTimes (p.96) - "[It's how] traditionalism is teased with elegant orchestral sounds, his slew of Western instruments, and Aggi Fernandes' synths and programming that really makes Niladri's sitar spin."
