“It was very unique to me. Both the movement of the dancers, which is great but also it matches the music or the music matches the movement rather, so it’s a perfect match. … Even though I am a scientist, I am in my heart a musician so that’s why I enjoyed this very much.
“I think [the music] it was big, it was great, sometimes overwhelming. Even though its many instruments which are Western, as a matter of fact I could hear this Eastern sound, Eastern melody, Eastern tones—which are very beautiful.”
“[Mix of Eastern and Western], that’s what I liked about it. So it’s perfect for the audience here. American audience or Western audience, this makes it so you can enjoy both—music is universal.”
“Sometimes I was listening to the music more than watching the dancers. But sometimes it was the other way around. But I can hear this music even now, so I’m hearing it in my ears all the time now. So those musicians, orchestra, drummers – perfect, perfect.”
“It will certainly stay, this music will [stay with me].”
