Reviews:

Impassioned and hugely ambitious in scope, The Fade In Time is a major statement from an artist and group extending the borders of their music beyond its national boundaries to encompass Bollywood beats, Polynesian textures and contemporary classical music. Steeped in drama, love, violence, lore and magic, all evoked with a charged mixture of imagination, ambition and experimentation, The Fade In Time roves the centuries and radically renews a living tradition, a delicate and richly embroidered ecosystem of song uncovered, cultivated and propagated for present and future generations.
