Punjab. Five Rivers becoming Mother Indus, carrying the soul of a lost civilisation, giving us the music of our people who sing and dance with every turn of the Earth.
The Punjab also mourns and wails at each devasation, invasion, division and scarcity of or in the land of plenty.
This album of the Punjab's music brings together the different regions and acknowledges them with the full splendour of a unique orchestra comprising the great musicians of Lahore.
This is our tribute to them and to their innovation throug the grandeur of their sounds which have, alas, been drowned by the monotony of electronic music. This album makes contemporary music with vigour of the traditions and aspirations of the Punjabis whereever they are.
