“Simply brilliant” ★★★★★

Seth Jordan, Songlines, UK


“For too long the term ‘world music’ has applied overwhelmingly to music from

Africa, the Indian subcontinent and South America.

Asia and the Pacific have been the Cinderellas at the party. Not anymore!” ★★★★★

Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald, AUSTRALIA


‘One of our favorite albums of the week, it’s not the usual thing’

Lauren Laverne, BBC Radio 6, UK 

“A playful and potent soundtrack. Utterly wonderful”

Stuart Derdeyn, Vancouver Sun, CANADA


“Beautiful cinematography and incredible music…

one coherent, jaw-dropping piece’’

Rob Schwartz, Billboard Asia, JAPAN


“Impassioned choruses are joined with polyrhythmic beats,

meditative passages cool the pace between songs tailor-made for dancing,

indigenous instruments support modern sensibilities and vice versa, and

all 74 minutes of the album sound like one very big, very happy family doing what they do best

while helping get the word out on a most serious issue."

Tom Orr, Roots World, USA


Songlines Magazine, UK
