Chinmaya wrote this for the sleeve of the original CD:

“In India a profound musical moment will be greeted by spontaneous outbursts of “WAH!” from the audience. WAH is wow, deep appreciation and an expression of being touched inside. This CD is my ‘WAH’ to the wonderful musicians who play on it….Without them my music and my heart would be so much less”.

Karma Circles reviews:

“The CD embodies a unique musical synthesis of East and West with Celtic and Indian motifs, circle and dance, and an ancient landscape that comes alive through 21st century sounds. Sarod, tablas and bamboo flute fuse with electronics, bass and drums in this interesting musical journey through many cultures and climes. You can’t help but let go and move your body with this music.”

AZNetNews, Oct/Nov 2003

“The lively, lilting melodies in Karma Circles (New Earth Records), by Chinmaya Dunster and The Celtic Ragas Band, are an exotic blend of Indian and Celtic flavors. Dunster is a master of the sarod, a 19-stringed classical Indian instrument. You will also hear a guest appearance from Govi, the guitar master, playing the middle-eastern oud and Shastro on bamboo flute. There are instruments on this CD that I’ve never heard of before (I’ll have to find out what a ‘swarmandel’ is!), but the sound is modern, upbeat, and very positive. What a happy experience it is!”

Aquarius Magazine

“Here’s a delightful set of multi-culti soundscapes by a cross cultural pro in the know. Creating his own path of Celtic Ragas, reflecting his backgrounds and passions, Dunster attracts important attention from people at the top of the musical food chain that know up from down. A tasty adult set that will go the distance for world beat fans looking for a new kick. Hot stuff.”

Fragrance of the East review:

“A Stunning music and visual tribute that takes the listener to the heart of the India Experience”.
