The Afro-Indian Project

£10.00

UK Kora player Ravi, plus Danny Thompson and Hossam Ramzy playing with Indian classical musicians. Very slickly produced by John Leckie and with some outstanding playing, this is an accessible and entertaining instrumental fusion recording.    fRoots Magazine 

Kora player Ravi produces an easily appreciated sound from the mixture of instruments. He plays here together with, amongst others, leading Santoor player Tarun Bhattacharya against a background of double bass and tablas from both India and Egypt. You can clearly hear that the African Kora blends beautifully with the traditional Indian instruments and the results are melodic and harmonious.  DJEMBE MAGAZINE
Ravi has pulled off a seriously good world-music album. Well recorded and arranged, the precise yet atmospheric kora playing sits delightfully in a rich Indian background, making one the most interesting world music projects of recent times.  THE INSIGHT MAGAZINE
