David Brunn in Ved Studios, Delhi India "It had been five years since I'd worked with tabla virtuoso Akram Khan.

But sitting at a restaurant in Delhi the seeds for this inspired recording were sown.

Alex Johnson and I had just settled in Paharganj, and the journey to Allahabad was already unfolding effortlessly before our eyes.

We were beginning pre-production of the KMP 2001 project, the documentation of the largest gathering of humans ever assembled.

We took a rickshaw to Connaught Circle and over a spirited meal we agreed that Akram would had pick the artists of his choosing and that Alex and I would continue on to Allahabad.

A few weeks later we were to meet at Ved Films Studios to let some great musicians do what they do best ... play their hearts out.

While sitting in the control room watching and listening, I had little doubt about the outcome of this recording."

David Brunn
