“SXSW notebook: A Seattle writer encounters Seattle bands ... in Austin ... it's like this: panoramic rock 'n' roll fronted by a petite, beautiful Indian woman...The cross-pollination is dizzying — East and West, ancient and modern, pop and classical, ecstatic spiritualism and headbanging rock. The potential for Rusted Root-style world groove dilettantism arises and is crushed by the frontwoman's chops. It's hard to argue her authenticity. Her name is Mehnaz, and it turns out the Mumbai native is a big deal in India, having recorded a national pop hit in 1996. Now she's working with a crew of veteran Seattle rockers in effort to do something truly unprecedented. It's an ambitious project and a stylistic departure for a town very much rooted in rock 'n' roll tradition.”
