"Indian classical music legend Vishwa Mohan Bhatt has mesmerized the world with his dazzling musicality, virtuosity and astonishing command of the Mohan Veena (an instrument he designed -- a modified and Easternized slide guitar). Bhatt is best known in the United States for his Grammy award winning album A Meeting by the River, which he made with guitar great Ry Cooder. Guitarist Matt Malley is an Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe nominated songwriter who co-founded the multi-platinum rock group Counting Crows. Malley is also a big fan of North Indian classical music and a friend and student of Bhatt. When chance brings them together, either Malley is taking lessons from his 'music guru' at Bhatt's home in Jaipur, India, or he is recording with Bhatt in his home studio in Thousand Oaks, California. Speaking about Sleepless Nights, their new album for World Village, Bhatt says, 'In my view, music is the melody for life. The seven musical notes carry all the diverse shades of love and this musical album is an endeavor to spread the message of love and harmony all over the world. In the contemporary world, love is the only emotion which needs to be experienced and appreciated, and Sleepless Nights, propagates this sacred emotion.' Malley adds, 'I hope that our record will put at least one more brick in the bridge between the East, West and all races of the world.'"
