High strung Burman

I've been tripping on Kronos Quartet for sometime now.

They're a string quartet who have been around since the late 70's.
Mainly playing comissioned works , they colloborate with a number of eclectic composers.

In Aug this year they released "You've stolen my heart" with Asha Bhosle.
First imperssion maybe that it's more Asha Bhosle than string quartet , but its also more Burman that Bhosle.

Preview here.

'tis a string party.

Check out the wicked start on Dum Maro Dum and the writhing strings throughout on the instrumental 'Mehbooba' and 'Piya too Ab to Aaja'.

Notice Dum Maro Dum translates to Take Another Toke. Trippy.
