Dream

Dream

by U. Srinivas, Michael Brook

CD

Overview

This self-described "ambient-crossover-techno-fusion" pairs the talents of Indian mandolin virtuoso U. Srinivas with the production skills and ambient guitar stylings of Canadian Michael Brook, best-known for his work with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. The idea is to take the meditative spirit of Indian Classical music and put it in a broad, more atmospheric ambient context. Aiding them in their quest are violinists Nigel Kennedy and Indian maestro Sikkil R. Bhaskaran, Brazilian percussionist/vocalist Nana Vasconcelos, cellist Caroline Lavelle, and singer Jane Siberry, each of whom adds their own distinctive ingredient to Dream's delicious musical stew. The result is a mind-altering mix that transcends all cultural and stylistic boundaries to move the listener in strange and mysterious ways-- a true soundtrack for the coming together of the global village.
