'Sitting here on a peaceful morning listening to your CD ... I had to put it on again because the mood was so beautiful I did not want to leave it. The voices sound heavenly!Thanks for sharing this with me...' -Terry Riley, internationally renowned composer, singer and pianist 'When I listen to Benjy play the esraj, it transports me beyond the beyond.' -John Friend, founder of Anusara Yoga "Voice of the Esraj is an endless stream of musical rasa that opens your whole being in a healing, spontaneous yoga.
