An incredible collection of some of global music's finest musicians have gathered to contribute exclusive tracks and remixes to help raise money for fusion pioneer Cheb i Sabbah's health care costs, in his battle against cancer.

Sachdev, Riffat Sultana & Sukhawat Ali Khan, Nitin Sawhney, Natacha Atlas, Karsh Kale, Bauhaus, Cheb i Sabbah, Transglobal Underground, MIDIval PunditZ, Amina Annabi, Bill Laswell & Gigi, Opium Feat.

From Cheb i Sabbah: "It was in May of 2011 when doctors told me that I had stage 4 stomach cancer and it had spread to my left lung and liver. I was given a less than six months sentence to live. They were wrong in part of their diagnosis; they did not take into account the power of prayers and love from the thousands of friends, fans and families that i received. It is because of your love, prayers and generosity that I am still alive today. After a major surgery and three months of intensive and painful chemo therapy in Germany, i have opted for phase two, an alternative and more holistic approach to healing in India and the US."

I am happy to support such a great musician, and his health struggles but I can't say I am going to listen to this disc that much. Some of the contributions are great, others are uneven. Still it is a worthy way to support Cheb i Sabbah, who has provide me much enjoyment over the years.

This is a fantastic collection of fantastic artists--many songs can't be found elsewhere, and within this eclectic mix, there are a ton of standouts on the two discs of music. Cheb i Sabbah is no longer with us, but this is a testament to how well-loved and respected he was around the world, and how influential he was as well.
