Journey – Ali Akbar Khan

Western melodies and Eastern instrumentation co-mingle in the quasi-Asian soundscapes of legendary Indian performer Ali Akbar Khan. Journey features Khan performing on the sarod, an instrument that he’s famous for, alongside artists like Jai Uttal on keyboards/synthesizers (Uttal also produced the album), John Bergamo on drums and Shri Pranesh Khan on the tabla. Among the North Indian classically-themed pieces present on Ali Akbar Khan’s Journey are “Fantasy” and “Carnival of Mother Kali,” each containing enchanting rhythms and lush instrumentation, and the 15-minute long traditional offering “Morning Meditation.” The melodic nature of Journey makes it an ideal primer for those looking for further exploration of the Eastern musical philosophies.-
