Kathmandu-based instrumentalist Shyam Nepali is a master of the sarangi, a bowed instrument with a slightly weeping sound that reminds one of a cross between a violin and a Chinese erhu. On this solo release, Nepali shows his technical skill and virtuosity with the sarangi, serenading listeners with ten tracks of pure strings. Despite his backdrop and the connotations of the instrument, the music does not always sound specifically Indian in nature.

For example, "Illusions" borrows from the melody of the Japanese folk classic "Sakura" and "Destination" is played in a rich, multi-textured manner that is slightly reminiscent of Appalachian banjo music. "Himalayan Sounds" has a more traditional Tibetan sound to it, with a warm, cheerful melody that utilizes both bowed and plucked playing styles and "Winds of Everness" is sparse and meditative. A beautiful album for exploring classic instrumentation from the Indian subcontinent.
