With their unique blend of Euro-Indian instrumentation and lush chant, Rasa has long proven to be in a class all their own. Saffron Blue continues to show the limitless quality of their musical gifts, with nine luminescent gems that revel in contemporary Indian hues. Hans Christian does an exceptional job of creating a mood that is mystical and alluring, with shimmering mosaics of sitar, sarangi, violin, cello, rhythm and sublime synthesizer mood. The chant of Kim Waters strikes a unique balance between being spiritual and sensual, her voice floating through each track with the lightness of a feather. Together they once again cement their role as one of Indian music’s most fascinating duos, and the album is a testament to that fact.
