The Creations of Time (2008)

Ranging from introspective to exuberant, The Creations of Time explores timbres, voices and rhythms from Asia, India and the Middle East, Nature and old movies, and fuses those with modern styles and sensibilities. The result is an unexpected but satisfying journey of creative discovery... Album pic: http://www.flickr.com/photos/geebee2007/
