Beautiful, mesmerizing, thrilling and profoundly musical ECM debut by the distinguished Indian-Iranian ensemble Ghazal.
Since its formation in 1997 by Shujaat Husain Khan and Kayhan Kalhor, long recognized as master musicians in their homelands, Ghazal has stunned audiences around the world with its unique music, which is comprised of improvisations based on Indian and Persian traditional repertoire. Their communicative power is in full bloom on this live recording from Berne, Switzerland.
