Format: DVD
There is a HUGE problem with this Live Concert DVD. The sound and video are not in sync on the second disc. I don't know if it's just me, but that kinda ruins the magic of a live set on video, particularly one where the emphasis is so obviously on percussion (plenty of focus on the tabla player's hands.) It makes your eyes, ears, and mind fight the entire time. Thankfully, the first disc doesn't have this problem.

Besides that major qualm and the fact that the content is too short (If it weren't for the multi-angle, one disc would have been quite big enough,) I still enjoyed the music, which incorporates elements of Drum and Bass, Traditional Indian Music, Hip-Hop, Funk, and Trance, an eclectic mix that comes together quite nicely.

Had it been longer and not had the sync problem on the second disc, I would have given it 4 stars.

As mentioned by others, the concert is great. The way it was shot with multiple camera angles is great - especially if you want to keep your eyes on Zakir's hands! The editing and 'special' effects are a bit cheesey, but they don't overwhelm the whole video.
The reason I'm giving such a low rating is that the second disk's audio is not in sync with the video! That's pretty inexcusable for a live, percussion-centric concert. I may have a defective copy, so I'll contact the manufacturer and report back if that is the case.

This dvd was very entertaining, The viewer gets an opportunity to watch percussion masters at work. The collaborations with artists who sing are also very nice to watch as well. The dvd also has very high quality sound

I was at this show at the Fillmore last year and it was a great show, though not as good as their first show at Stern Grove the previous summer. I hope they also release a dvd of that show, until then, get the audio cd. The dvd, is beautifully done, but it also shows that the musicians were a little uncomfortable because it was so damn hot at that show. I remember I was near the stage, and people were crammed like sardines. These guys should be seen at an outdoor venue. Good dvd, overall, though, and the multiangle feature is done wonderfully.

Excellent concert. A delight for anyone interested in music in general. It crosses borders in genre and is played by master musicians. It sounds just fantastic in DTS 5.1 and also in Dolby Digital. It has multiangle view also. I would say you will get your money's worth.
