They encapsulate the many facets of Asia – capturing, molding, fusing, and coming up with a unique sound yet completely enchantingly Eastern. Usually a 24 member group, they are coming as a 9 piece band with musicians from Malaysia, Korea, Taiwan and Turkey. The music shifts from the spiritual and the evocative, to the exciting and joyous.
