UK – Desert Slide is a CD by a new Sense World Music collective featuring Grammy award winner Vishwa Mohan Bhatt playing the mohan veena (Indian slide guitar) and a selection of the top desert musicians of Rajasthan.
This ensemble reflects the excitement of its birthplace, its surroundings, its musical origins and the colors of Rajasthan. In its bridging of tradition, nothing like Desert Slide has ever been captured for posterity before.
The combination of the mesmerizing artistry of Bhatt and the soaring passion of vocalist Anwar Khan coupled with the driving hypnotic rhythms of dholak (barrel shaped drum), khadtal (Indian castanets) and the desert strings of kamaicha and sindhi sarangi induces a trance like state.
