Moving and mysterious, mischievous and impish, and at times surging with unbridled energy, Mana’s “Book of Sand” is a comprehensive cross-cultural musical experience.

Drawing on a veritable orchestra of unusual and evocative western and eastern instruments, Chris Tokalon (saxes, Bansuri/Indian flute, Hang drum and vocals), and Nic Paton (guitar, zouk, ukulele, charango, cittern, arranging and programming) have produced a magical musical palette strongly painted in Arabic and Eastern moods, yet defying any adequate description.
