Robert Maycock
BBC Music Magazine, February 2002

"...Some purposeful fusion comes from the Toronto Tabla Ensemble. This lively outpost of the Indian diaspora may recall the Calcutta Drum Orchestra which toured internationally a decade ago, but it is quite a different animal, creative and energetic with a strong jazz element... All in all the album exudes fun and opens ears too."

NOW Magazine, November 2001

"In the 10 years since Ritesh Das began building beats with his Toronto Tabla Ensemble, he's put the rumbling Indian classical percussion instruments into every possible configuration. From jamming onstage with the Tea Party to moving through the worlds of jazz, funk, flamenco and club music, Das has been instrumental in expanding the scope of the tabla beyond simple accompaniment, and he knows it. An air of supreme confidence marks the collaborations on his 11-member ensemble's new Weaving disc. Das's orchestrated tabla encounters with the Arabic vocals of Maza Meze's Maryem Hassan Tollar and the nimble guitar of Levon Ichkhanian sound utterly natural as the tabla's rolling beat blends effortlessly with the different sounds."
