"A marvelous kaleidoscope of shifting melodies, rhythms and instrumental colors.' - Downbeat "The musicians of Do'a don't just double on instruments, they multiply them into a veritable symphony." - Washington Post 'A shimmering kaleidoscope of sound, taking from jazz, middle eastern and African musics. The music is introspective without being heavy, lighting the way into new areas with grace and cheer.' - The Victory Music Folk and Jazz Review Do'a is an Arabic-Persian word signifying a call to prayer, meditation, chanting and worship.
