This historic collaboration brings together musicians of the Hindustani and Arab traditions. Bhatt has already reaped a Grammy and the undying support of legions of new fans as a result of the great genre-defying ventures that he has undertaken over the last several years. He is joined in this cross-pollination by oud and fiddle master Shaheen who is equally adept at both traditional Arabic styles and Western classical music. The maquam of the Arabic world and the rag of the subcontinent fuse into a music that is truly exalted, as the title suggests. The two masters are ably supported by Hindustani musicians Ronu Majumdar on flute and Sangeeta Shankar on violin.
