Principal collaborators in Kabul Workshop are Khaled Arman (born in Afghanistan) and Fransesco Russo (a native of Naples). They began their musical partnership as a means of exploring their shared passions for electronica and the traditional music of India and Afghanistan. A spin through the tracks here is enough to comprehend the crucial significance of Indian and Afghanistani music in their sound, though Western genres weigh in at significant moments. The tune "My Land," for instance, clearly bears the influence of jazz and funk. The remaining five songs are a masterful blending of Indian and Afghanistani melodic and rhythmic elements with artfully realized, and often dramatic, electronica. A notable debut.—PVV
