Ghazal was a style of ancient love poems that originated in sixth-century Arabic culture before spreading along the Silk Road to South Asia in the 12th century. On their fourth album, the band Ghazal (featuring Kayhan Kalhor on the fiddle-like kamancheh and Shujaat Husain Khan on sitar and vocals, as well as guest Sandeep Das on tabla) make a similar connection, bridging traditional Indian (Khan) and Persian (Kalhor) music on these three long, thematically based pieces. “Fire” starts with a slow, droning section that inexorably builds to a frenzied crescendo before gentle conclusion. The slow-to-midtempo “Dawn” features the most melodic playing as well as singing. Ending this live concert recording on a high note, “Eternity” starts amiably with Khan and Kalhor soloing back and forth, ebbing and flowing as the musicians encourage each other to another blazing finale. There's a surprising density of the sound for much of this, projecting musical imagery as detailed as a Persian rug.
Not the right genre
These three pieces are well worth the price. I use it to meditate and to relax. Trust your initial instincts. Buy the music.
Having only three songs on the album, you get about an hours worth of peace and serenity. Wonderful blend of Persian and Indian sounds. I highly recommend this CD to anyone interested in taking the soul into a higher realm.
Calming andentrancing. Great for making out :)
