Album Remarks & Appraisals:
20 Strings & the Truth is the instrumental album Harry Manx fans have been waiting for. His signature instrument, the 20-string Mohan Veena, is the focus of the album and vocals appear on just one track. Many of the tracks are based on Indian ragas, where Manx uses the 'mode' of the raga as a foundation in creating his own songs. Much like a good raga, this collection of instrumental works is a great soundtrack to whatever journey you are on.
