Baraka Moon: Wind Horse

Consisting of Sukhawat Ali Kan/voc, Stephen Kent/b-erc, Anastasi Mavrides/g Peter Warren/dr and guests Gurdeep Hira/tab, Ben Issacs/perc with Swapan Gandhi/fl, Baraka Moon melds Southern Asian harmonies and voices with Western melodicism. Ali Khan/s nasal voice teams with changes on “Rasa Divine” and reeds on the mystical “Alap” while on “Narayane” glides over the busy and intricate percussion. A Caribbean feel is palpable on “Mankuntu” and a dash of reggae pulsates on “Sabir” with a meditative dance works well on the title track. Music to curry favor.
