Description

The yearning bow of Ustad Sultan Khan's sarangi and his timeless voice merge into one seamless instrument, borne here on the inspiring grooves of six leading remix artists.

In late 2003, world-renowned sarangi master Ustad Sultan Khan recorded ten pieces in a New York studio with producer David Nichtern and an elite group of contemporary musicians. The result is Rare Elements: a pulsing spectrum that blends India's traditional sounds with a broad range of electronica and world beat.

Joe Clausell opens the album with "Aja Maji," followed by Thievery Corporation's hypnotizing rendition of "Tarana" and Radar One's "Sad Bachelor Remix of Jana." Also featuring Ralphi Rosario and Nickodemus & Osiris, Rare Elements offers a spellbinding fusion of Ustad Sultan Khan's instrumental force and vocal nuance, down-tempo pulse lines, and moving rhythms for a unique listening experience that will rejuvenate mind, body, and soul.

electronic remix of chants and drums, sped up and yet still very much in tune with the eastern feel and sound.
