"Shirish succeeds with an astounding release
... thought-provoking... haunting"
- Inside World Music
"creative sounds and visions... wondrously mysterious"
- Jazz Weekly
"...an immediate pleasure to listen to. Steeped in Vedic and Carnatic word-play, Ka playfully negotiates what is apparently a fine line between common and divine, between classical and folk, between speech and music, and - perhaps most impressively - between Eastern and Western music."
- Boston Musical Intelligencer
"...beautifully wrought... deep compositional complexity... entrancing"
