"Tigers of the Raj" blends the rich interlocking rhythmic textures of tablas, dhol, douffli, ankle bells, manjira and dholak, with the haunting sounds of Indian voices, swaramandala, santoor, sarangi, flute, sitar and modern keyboards. The ten pieces in 'Tigers of the Raj' trace a journey to Rajasthan, the land of princely dynastic rulers, elegance, and stark beauty. Rhythmic elements underpin the wider range of themes that characterizes the album. The power, splendor, color, and epic sense of adventure found in the ancient palaces of Rajasthan made a profound impact on the author who here attempts to orchestrate moods and feelings evoked by his journey, weaving together modern techniques with ancient sounds in a musical score fit for a maharajah."
