About this album: 


Music forges strong bonds of camaraderie among its creators, performers, and listeners. The collaborative album Maithree: The Music of Friendship does exactly that in proposing a harmonious coexistence between players from different cultures who share a common global dream of enthusiastic diversity.


Co-producer Gary Hines (of Grammy-winning Sounds of Blackness) says:

These are more than just songs. They are a rhythmic, melodic, and harmonic convergence of many diverse souls and spirits into one expressive creation. What comes from the heart reaches the heart. The Maithree experience makes our hearts beat together as one.
