A friend turned me on to these guys. I have been listening to As Night Falls on the Silk Road since I got it. Very beautiful magical music. Three guys playing mainly sitar, kamancheh (spiked fiddle) and tablas create a mixture of Persian and Indian music. You can read more about them by clicking on the Amazon links below. I highly recommend As Night Falls.., have not yet heard the other records. I think some or all of these guys also have some solo records.

The Records:

Lost Songs of the Silk Road 1997 Shanachie

As Night Falls on the Silk Road 1998 Shanachie

Moon Rise Over the Silk Road 2000 Shanachie
