fans of world music will relish now that niyaz has dropped their latest work of art. in fact, fans of the prolific azam ali should flock to stores immediately as this may very well be one of the finest cds we will have the pleasure of hearing this year. azam's voice is in top form once again & the musicians certainly aren't slouches either. whereas most groups or contrabands suffer from the sophomore curse, nine heavens actually is a better album in many ways than the debut was. what's even more special is that we have not one but two fantastic cds to listen to here. the songs on disc two are actually the same songs but the instrumentation sounds somewhat different giving us yet another great listen for our bucks. side one is essentially more electronic & side 2 could be classified as world folk music perhaps. give this new cd a listen & i'm sure you'll see what i'm raving about right now.
I would recommend this to a friend
