Support Cuatro Puntos by purchasing Jaipur to Cairo! Available for immediate shipment or pickup.
This album is a musical journey beginning in India, with a work based on traditional raag, through pieces by Iranian composer Reza Vali, to Afghanistan for another piece by Bishop and the area around Syria for a work by Sadie Harrison whose connection with Arabic traditional music goes back many years, through Israel to Egypt for chamber works by Cohen and Farag.
"As well as being extremely entertaining the album also demonstrates the universality of music in all its different guises as the true universal language." - Fanfare Magazine
