World fusion music reflecting jazz, classical, folk and worldwide musical influences performed on instruments from around the globe.

Our music strives to express the appreciation we feel for the great diversity of musical elements in the world that may be combined to create a sound that synthesizes the East and the West, the old and the new. We see a universal art being born in this day, an art that fuses together the beauty of the past and yet is new, expressing hope in the rebirth of civilization and the unity of the human race.
