Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest film, Tunun, impressionistically documents the recording sessions that led to this album. Jonny Greenwood, with his Radiohead pedigree, will attract the most attention, but it is qawwali group Rajasthan Express and composer Shye Ben Tzur who are the real centre of this collection. Fantastic devotional performances, highly recommended. On Nonesuch.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 21st June 2016
This "supergroup" of musicians from India gell together amazingly and this album is really, really strong. I love Qawaali music and traditional Indian music and this is a really stunning blend of different traditions and sounds. The songs are spiritual, including traditional or newly written poems, such as those by Ben Tzur himself. I honestly can't really pick up on Greenwood's guitar at all in the mix, but I trust he is the mastermind and funder that was able to manifest this beautiful project.
