Desert Slide reflects the excitement of its birthplace, its surroundings, its musical origins and the colours of Rajasthan. She has done this so frequently and for so long that the lines of the skin creases are wearing away. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt plays a theme, a rhythmic melodic hook of his own composition early in the piece to convey a sense of journeying, but the wit of his playing lies in slipping between the interstices of 'ragadom'. Henna is also associated with typically Rajasthani melas. For this project, this virtuoso, who is a native of Rajasthan, joined his gipsy fellow countrymen, the Divana , whose talents are today very well known.
