ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In August 2007, after 5 years in the making, Anuj Rastogi's debut album release of "Omnesia" proved that some things truly are worth waiting for. Having composed, written and produced music for several years, Anuj's debut album shines with a collection of tracks unlike anything ever before. The album's first singles 'The River' and 'Jaane Do' are now available on Myspace.

"Omnesia" is not an album, but a soundtrack for the world around us, where human stories big and small share a canvas in a harmony that only Anuj Rastogi could paint.


Reviews
“What I truly appreciated is that he is not one to shy away from experimentation or from unusual juxtapositions; this album is an interesting journey in exploring music…. Omnesia is… an interesting experience for anyone who wants to look beyond the typical sights and sounds of the world today.”
- MyBindi.com

“This album is very much a labour of love. Eclectic influences and moments of true beauty. I particularly like “The River” track - it's fantastic”
- Niraj Chag (acclaimed UK-based composer)

“...there are flashes of brilliance on the album that show Rastogi is definitely an artist to keep an eye out for in the future.”
- Anokhi Magazine

"A fine example of the kind of innovative music coming out of Canada, especially if you're into desi-diaspora music"
- BBC Asian Network

"The River" is his work of art, the album’s gem. With all the strings and sitars, and tabla and beautiful keyboards all over the album ... the non-reliance on samples, the focus on creating these musical lines himself, all this is showcased to perfection in "The River".
- IndianElectronica.com

"Ambient electronica 'takes chai' with rap, sitar, tabla, saxophone, spoken word and Hindi-pop. This self-titled sonic journey from... Anuj Rastogi ventures excitingly close to AR Rahman territory."
- Inside Entertainment Magazine

"Anuj is now poised to emerge on the world electronica stage as force to be reckoned with and this record is his vehicle to do just that....Needless to say, his next album should pick up where this one left off, with ambition and vision."
- Ethnotechno.com

"With a bold fusion of traditional and modern styles, Toronto-based composer and producer Anuj Rastogi makes a striking debut with his CD Omnesia...it’s this commitment to diversity in sounds, people and ideas that works to make Omnesia special and unique."
- Tribute.ca

About Anuj Rastogi (Producer + Composer + Musician):

Having waded in the waters of many musical styles, he has developed a sense of instrumentation, and arrangement all his own.
