Al Gromer Khan and Amelia Cuni
Monsoon Point (New Earth/India Today, 2007)
With the CD cover promising “ambient soundscape and ancient dhrupad singing,” this album features a single 55-minute track. It features Al Gromer Khan, who grew up in Morocco, England and India, accompanying Amelia Cuni who was born in Italy and trained in North Indian classical singing.
Khan plays electronic keyboards and Cuni improvises on dhrupad music originating in North India. Soft, pleasant, fluid and calming, this new age blend of east and west is perfect for a calm afternoon.
