about

Blending inspiration from various cultural traditions, the album’s instrumentation centers around the acoustic guitar and harmonium played by Avasa and Matthew; orchestral strings composed by Robin Livingston with additional solos by Steve Gardner; flute from Todd Boston (who has played with Snatam Kaur and Simrit Kaur); tabla by Benjy Wertheimer and percussion from Gabriel Harris (the son of Joan Baez). The Road travels through varied etheric atmospheres, with celebratory melodic chants that inspire your feet to dance, distinct devotional ballads, Sanskrit mantra and lullabies of light.
