Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The word ghazal means a type of Persian (Iranian) poetry and also describes an old style of romantic ballad often sung in India. The classical music traditions of Iran and India both feature complex scales and rhythms that demand a lifetime of study. However, they are highly compatible with each other, and combining them allows for fresh insights and deeper pleasures. Shujaat Hussain Kahn is the son of the legendary sitarist Ustad Vilayat Khan, and his own command of the multistringed instrument is a wondrous thing. He is joined by Iran's Kayhan Kalhor, a master of the kamancheh, a spiked violin with a woodsy tone, and the setar, a small lute thought to be a prototype of the sitar. The brilliant tabla drummer Swapan Chaudhuri rounds out an all-star trio. Together they make exciting, accessible, richly melodic music that will delight listeners of all tastes and backgrounds. --Christina Roden

Review

There's nothing strange about fusing Persian dastgah with North Indian raga.... They've got a similar emphasis on ornament and improvisation, and even though there's a world of difference between them, when the two traditions come together on Ghazal, the music makes perfect sense ... none of the players here are exceptional; they're subtle, measured, and lyrical. But the music they've made--completely improvised in the studio, only 40 minutes after meeting each other--is beautifully evocative, and as perfect as fusion ever gets: poetic, dynamic, alive. -- Option

I found that this music grows on you with repeated listening. It ebbs and flows, and before you know it you're transported to another time and place, not readily found in today's world. The fusion of Indian and Persian influences works surprisingly well. The vocal is an enchanting complement to the two exotic instruments. Not to be missed!

Another must have addition to the Ghazal collection. Instrumental maestros playing with passion, flair, grace and haunting beauty. The harmonious combination of sitar and spiked fiddle is a complete joy to the ears.

This music openned my eyes again. After hearing part of it on Public Radio while driving on the highway, I had to stop in an Indian music store in Chicago to get it.

This is a wonderful CD. 4 cuts of music I play over and over again. It takes me away into a place where my soul can open up and receive beauty.
