Sarod master & composer Whetzel first met the Algerian-born Parisian poet YAS more than a decade ago, & they have yearned to pursue a collaboration ever since. Finally, they have reunited to make this music, and it was well worth the wait! This combination of rhythmic musical arrangements & the recitation of French poetry works really well. Six tracks in French, three in English, & one with both. You gotta love it!
