Since 2003, the group has been dedicated to exploring original compositions and improvisations based on the texts of Rumi, Hafiz, Lao Tzu, Shankarcarya, Kabir, Issa as well as others. This ensemble has been recognized by reviewers across the globe as being one of the few truly unique and original groups on the music scene today.
