ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It has been a long and winding road but here we are,at last,with our long overdue full length album.We have,over the years,absorbed numerous musical influences like jazz,irish folk,latin,hiphop,funk and obviuosly Indian music,and created a hybrid style of our own,that we call "world rock".
The passage of life itself has unfolded various situations and events which have enriched us with a tapestry of visions and thoughts.We have drawn from these and is reflected in our songs ,which cover a gamut of issues set against a vibrant collage of sounds from across the globe.This album comprises songs culled from the early days of the band,to brand new songs which were written specifically for this album.
These songs are about real people and real happenings and we are sure you will be able to immidiately relate to what we are singing about and make your own interpretations of the songs.We hope and pray that we can help to pave the way for a beautiful,peaceful and better world.All music is one,all humans are one,and we have just one world to live in,so let us take care of it and "give peace a chance".
