Bob Dylan is always re-inventing his own songs and on this fascinating project musicians from thirteen different countries across the world have taken the opportunity to do the same.
Soneros from Cuba, gypsies from Rumania, poets from Rajasthan, musicians of the Nile, Persian Sufis, have each chosen to portray in their own way, one song from Dylan s repertoire whose subject has a particular link to their own culture.
Dylan s inimitable lyrics have been translated into the local community language of each artist and then tailored to suit the verse and rhythmical patterns of the vocal and musical style.
