Nice but..

It is a fusion music leaning more toward asian (indian) music than western. I love the second one 'Swara-Kakali'. Menuhin's violin playing is simply brilliant. Shankar is also very good. This CD has nice set of compositions but something seemed off to me. I felt the fusion side of it was more forced than a melody of music joined in harmony creating a blend of western and eastern classical music. I can't wait to hear the original version of West meets East recorded before this one.
