The word loka in Hindi/Sanskrit can mean a world or realm of experience. The track titles simply translate as First World, Second World, etc.; I did not intend to colour the mind with descriptive titles, so that you, the listener, could create your own realm of experience."

If you are a fan, as I am, you may hear pieces which bear similarities to early recordings. But I think of it as an artist refining an idea through his mastery of the various instruments at his disposal. So saying, I recommend this CD most enthusiastically. Hari Om Tat Sat.
