As the name suggests, the album moves the inner being, taking the soul on a beautiful journey of haunting melodies, yet creating an experience of absolute abandon.
Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, the 1994 Grammy Award winner creates a soulful fusion of various string instruments including the santoor, the spanish guitar and the violin. The saxophone, flute, harp and tabla accompanied by melodious alaaps sung by Sadhna Sargam complete the picture of blissful harmony created by the maestro's innovative Mohan veena.
The compilation of eight tracks is woven in an intricate fabric based on ragas such as Kafi, Jog, Kirwani, Yaman, Hamsadhwani and Bageshree. Each composition brings forth the immense ease with which the artiste has fused the Indian with western to create a mellifluous assortment.
There is a simple beauty in the interplay between the Mohan veena, the santoor and the violin along with the flute, which has been incorporated to form a unique blend. The effect is a soul-searching trip, haunting, yet soothing at the same time.
