Originally released in 1981, Rasa has long been admired and studied by musicians as a model for how to do a cross-cultural recording project where the musicians actually understand something of each other's musical cultural and actually feel it. Remastered from the original tapes by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering. Energetic, delightful, virtuosic and soulful, and available again for the first time in over 40 years. Includes extensive liner notes by Jody Stecher and a new essay by Baiju Bhatt.
