Norwegian jazz saxophonist Jan Garbarek and Pakistani Khyal singer Ustad Fateh Ali Khan, with musicians from Pakistan, released on the ECM label in 1992 the album Ragas and Sagas.
The Allmusic review by Mark W. B. Allender awarded the album 4 stars stating "For aficionados of Indian or Pakistani music, this is a great recording; Garbarek's lines are right in step with the traditional styles of improvisation. Listeners unacquainted with these traditions will find this recording a mesmerizingly exotic disc. Those familiar with Garbarek's work will be very surprised. This is a completely unique recording for him; one can only hope that he makes further explorations in this vein"
