Kali Sultana – L’ombre du ghazal (2008)

"I used to dream of a world in which composers, performers and producers could make music without being constrained by the bottlenecks of genre and market forces. French guitarist Titi Robin has made an album as if tht fantasy were true ... the result is rich and moving, a tale with the depth of a novel and the narrative drive of a folk legend."
John L. Walters THE GUARDIAN 2009
