Some Review Excerpts:
The work represents the approach of a serious fusion music to maturity. Romantic
titles – ‘Prayers of Love’, ‘Monsoon memories’ -
“A brave..attempt to meld two disparate musics that sets an imaginative precedent..
From devotional musing to visceral excitement. It makes for a great listen .. Good
“It gets better and better.. A brave, bold and successful contribution to East-
“East meets West in a wonderful musical experiment.. An extraordinary cultural interchange..
and the result was very exciting.. the music was an incredible experience.. The Quartet
was interesting and full of lovely harmonies, well worth a place in the regular repertoire.
They sounded wonderful and the experiment was a great success.” -
“A richly inventive work.. evokes many romantic and different feelings, with changing
forms and textures.. something excitingly modern, a creative fusion of two long traditions.
In an age of cheap commercialism and meretricious garbage here is something of real
merit and inventiveness.” -
“‘Monsoon Memories’ This movement which evokes the thundery outburst of a monsoon
downpour is full of musical energy, and very good rhythms.. An interesting and important
work.. cannot be praised enough.. Wajahat excels himself. His gayaki singing style
imitating the human voice is superb.. This record is an important addition to the
modern string repertoire” -
