This album is mostly instrumental but contains a couple tracks sung by Bhagavan Das whose voice is enchanting and soothing. Ray Spiegel's mastery of the tabla is truly represented in Sum and Kali. What he has done on this album with the tabla has never been done before. The arrangement and composition of the music is unique and catches your attention. His creativity has expanded the possibilities and horizons of both eastern and western music. This album is jazzy and upbeat, yet relaxing at the same time.
