"These artists were brought together for the first time, after 25 years of collaborating in various other combinations, by the Asian Music Circuit who produced a tour of the UK September 1997. The tour was presented by Contemporary Music Network (CMN) Tours with funding provided by the Arts Council of England. Taking place during the year of the 50th anniversary of the independence of India & Pakistan, the tour celebrated some of the greatest achievements in the collaboration between Indian & western music with four musicians who have played a leading role in this field, producing some of the most exciting music of our time."
