"Sacred Insanity by Emam & Friends is an amazing stew of multi-ethnic instrumentalists and vocalists. The mandala on the cover is a visual indicator of the music - colorful, circular and in motion. Some great fusion drumming by Sivamani as well as Emam''s tasty tabla and percussion."
David Licht - Modern Drummer (March 2000)
"Another fabulous fusion in world music comes from Emam & Friends on the new album Sacred Insanity, which blends contemporary acoustic music with styles from Iran, India, Europe and the U.S. using voice, percussion, acoustic guitar, cello, bansuri, oud, violin, drums, sax. Led by Emam on tabla, this outstanding group of musicians produces a set that can easily appeal to those weaned on pop music as world music aficionados.....the multilayered rhythms blend beautifully with the voice and melody instruments to form a satisfying whole that is far more than the sum of its parts. The music is thoroughly enjoyable as easy listening, yet offers the attentive person a wealth of subtle and richly embroidered sonic textures."
Dan Liss - Aquarius (Aug. 99)
