Ragas And Sagas si pone nell'ambito della musica rituale hindu, nell'approfondimento di quelle melodie (ragas) dell'India Settendrionale, fatte conoscere in occidente ed in maniera giustamente soggettiva da Ravi Shankar, Mahavishnu e Shakti, Geroge Harrison, Ram Narayam e tanti altri.
La peculiare vocalità dei cantori induisti Ustad Fateh Ali Khan e Deepika Thathaal rafforzano magnificamente le tessiture di sax e sarangi (sorta di violone tradizionale affine al sitar, che viene suonato in verticale con l'uso dell'archetto), mentre si completano e si sovrappongono il drumming di Manu Katchè ed il suono "liquido percussivo" delle tabla.
Twelve Moons riconduce all'atmosferico e sognate universo nordeuropeo, a quelle pulsazioni distese ed ai ricami tenui, tessuti dalle tastiere e dalle voci accattivanti e quasi esoteriche della splendida Mari Boine Persen (autrice anche di un'ottima performance registrata per Real World) e di Agnes Buen Garnas.
Progetto ottimamente disegnato e definoto, fornisce un'idea di perfetta fusione tra "musicisti e suoni" e la testimonianza più vivida e fluorescente deriva dal remake di
Brother Wind March e di Witchi-Tai-To (di Jim Pepper), rivitalizzate da una inconsueta propulsione.

La musica di Garbarek varia dal rigiso al tiepido, glaciale come gli inverni norvegesi, pallida e tenue come i colori del disgelo. E' un poeta e per creare poesia con uno strumento non basta mettere le note al posto giusto. Forse distrugge i suoi nastri con lo stesso martello con cui Michelangelo colpì il Mosè: "Perchè non parli?"
Dopo il meraviglioso exploit con l'Hilliard Ensamble e il fortunato capolavoro
Officium, Garbarek ha prodotto con parsimonia. E per In Praise Of Dreams recupera il percussionista amico Manu Katchè e un grande violinista, kim Kashkashian.
Come d'abitudine, Garbarek usa lo spazio musicale con un'estrema libertà e grande rigore. Toglie, invece di aggiungere. Ma qui c'è un nuovo sole che aiuta a sciogliere i ghiacci, un'inflessione soul e una spirale folk che stringono il cuore. Dire che Garbarek si abbandona a facili romanticismi sarebbe un sacrilegio, ma l'utilizzo dei loop e il violino che si lascia tentare da una melodia zigana o da una lontana reminiscenza klezmer rendono questa volta la sua musica più che la fantastica colonna sonora per un film immaginario un'esperienza cinematografica totale. Da guardare a occhi chiusi.
