    It's an album that delights, challenges and provokes, while reimagining old folk traditions. [Feb 2020, p.35]

    Navarasa: Nine Emotions is a rollercoaster of vibrancy.
  3. The music develops, gradually growing in its elegance, until further down the path Yorkston takes over, singing the baleful words of the great Scottish poet Robert Burns. The song finds a path across the globe from one visionary figure to another, the peak of a record that is somewhat visionary itself.

    The resulting fusion suggests nothing less than an Eastern Astral Weeks. [Feb 2020, p.94]

    The instrumental pieces are a bit harder to suss out with, both "The North Carr" (laughter) and "Darbari" (peace/tranquility) coming across as more mournful than their subjects might suggest. As a whole, though, Navarasa: Nine Emotions is another strong effort from this agile and unexpectedly prolific trio.
