The Early World
With “Crossing Border” music from the Arab, Indian, European and Jewish tradition.
Windstreken consists of tabla player Niti Ranjan Biswas, organist Sebastiaan van Delft (on the beautiful sounding “chest organ”) and flutist and saxophonist Pieter de Mast. This remarkable composition is complemented with an oud player, a violinist and a cellist. Music from all corners of the world, you can call it world fusion, but also with a distinct jazzy approach and sometimes you hear classical music. “Crossing Border” music is several respects. CD.
