Interesting song. Sounds a bit like a mix between various "eastern" cultures.
I really like the drums here. They are very powerful and they play a good, nice rhythm. Also, the string instrument (is that a sitar?) sounds amazing. I also like the melody it is playing.

Overall, this is a very good song. Very different from what I have expected during the short intro, where we can only hear a humming sound. Nice work!

Love the filtered drums, seriously unexpected element but it works great. Kinda think a cello would've been a better fit though, or cello as well as double bass. Gotta agree with previous reviewer as well, that more variation on the theme would've been nice. Still, awesome track outside of what you normally get here, great job!

This is a very unique song, and I love the instrument choice. It all blends together nicely :)

Reminds me of Macedonian music, a pleasant surprise on NG! The main instrument (the oud?) has a good sound to it and plays some very catchy melodies. A bit more variation on the theme would have been nice as it was a little repetitive. I liked the driving percussion and the strong sense of rhythm throughout. The strings were an interesting touch but i think they fit in well and added some depth to the piece.
Very classy heavy reverb ending. Most appropriate end to a charming song. Good work!
