Congratulations to Qasim Naqvi, listed here in The Daily Beast’s list of The 40 Most Intriguing Musicians of 2016.

“…a suite of seven short pieces weaving in and out of time to explore the principles of chance and intention—in both music and history. Clocking in at just over 30 minutes, the scope of Naqvi’s album is nothing if not ambitious. But without a minute wasted, Naqvi manages to explore the power of music in all of its complexity…” -Maggie Molloy, Second Inversion
