Om Suite Ohm by Harry Manx

Slide guitarist and musical innovator Harry Manx is something of a globetrotting musical explorer. Stints in Japan and India, where he learnt the 20-string Mohan Veena under the tutelage of Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, has led to the perfect fusion of East and West.

This is an excellent record, incorporating both traditional Indigenous and Asian influences.
