Fantastic voice that takes you to other dimensions
I love all of Shweta Jhaveri's cds. This and the others on her own label are truly magical and in a class of their own. The earlier cds on the Biswas label are not helped by the poor reporduction quality of the Biswas label. This particular cd has an ethereal quality that transports you to other worlds.
Highly recommended!

Hindustani vocalist, Shweta Jhaveri, captures the precious, golden center of the exquisite with a voice that is exceptionally mezmerizing, exhilarating and haunting. Her control and elegance with her voice is transfixing, absolutely captivating as she draws her listeners deep into the emotion of this devotional music, the ancient stories of the past echoing in the embellishments. Like a bird riding air currents, dipping, diving, and cresting with the flow, her effortless rising and falling through the peaks and valleys of these ragas blends with the natural breathing of the music, the living force in each one of these songs. Her ease and mastery is so profound that we forget this is a human voice- it melts into the call and cry of our own soul, the inhaling and exhaling of our own life.

Seductive smokey sinuous manifestation of divinity.
Shweta Jhaveri awakens ever so slowly in Kyayal-Saga, and we awaken with her. We can't help it. We are mesmerized. We float along her trailing velvet meanders, her switchbacks up the holy mountain. She quickens then steadies, then reachies the top, comes into the light. What an amazing journey! What an amazing voice!

Really worth the five stars
If I had three musical wishes I would wish for: 1) More CDs of this quality by Shweta Jhaveri, 2) That radio stations would amend their playlists to include this CD and CDs like this, 3) That I could see Shweta Jhaveri live. I'd also like to squeeze out another wish, and that would be to press 'reset' on the dictionary; and thereby re-establish the words we use and over-use into their original contexts. Adjectives of praise and adoration are SO over-used that they no longer carry any weight, and certainly not enough weight to accurately describe and honour this piece of spiritual devotion. All one can really say with any degree of certainty is that if the human voice has a purpose then it is not for language but rather for music. What Jhaveri has laid here before we, the privileged listener, is an example of just what the human voice is capable of. And what is that? Nothing short of a mirror that reflects the universe in its entirety. A glass ball that makes 360 degree reflections and unlike a regular mirror does not prevent the viewer from also looking through; because to witness not only the traditional reflection, but also the 'through' scene too combines to illuminate the universe in its multitude and magnitude.
