Discover Shakti's unknown cousin (sister?, brother (in law)? )!
First I thought I miss the highest energy and highest speed and those sharp edges that you can listen to on the 70s Shakti recordings (which I like much more than all this Remember Shakti Stuff).
But now after several months I find there's enough energy and speed on this album. And there are so many fine melodies(compositions) which dont' get boring with many times of listening, no they're getting bigger, deserving more respect. Of course Tasa's instrumental skills are not on the giant's level of McLaughlin, L. Shankar, Z. Hussein or of Trilok Gurtu. But they're playing far more than "well". And there is this fretless bass, constantly. If you like the other names I mentioned, as well as Charly Mariano's or Larry Coryell's indian affairs and if you like the samples, GET IT here!! You'll probably love it.
