Entertainment Reviews:

JazzTimes - p.67
"The raga-type sequences of their compositions open up a wide but exacting tableau for improvisation and Mahanthappa and Gopalnath engage in some beautiful counterpoint and unison playing, as well as passionate bits of call-and-response."
Signal To Noise (magazine) (p.49) - "'Snake!' has a wonderful groove, the two saxes and violin creating a dense weave that proceeds relentlessly for several minutes before bursting into solo sections; its rhythm is that of the chase, hurried and breathless."

Liner Note Author: Rudresh Mahanthappa.
Recording information: 11/13/2007/11/14/2007.
On his first five albums as a leader, saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa explored an edgy post-bop direction. On KINSMEN, however, he teams up with saxophonist Kadri Gopalnath and the Dakshina Ensemble, who specialize in South Indian classical music, to make a connection between his own post-bop roots and Indian classical forms. Unlike many Indian-influenced albums released in the West, KINSMEN doesn't rely completely on traditional raga forms. Instead, the album draws on the modes and timbres of Indian music itself, while maintaining the collaborative range, and high-energy swing, of traditional jazz.
