Review by Kathy Parsons
"Rise" is the second of three singles from Michelle Qureshi's upcoming 10-track album (June 2024) called Zindagi. The album title is a word of Persian origin that means "life" in several South Asian languages, and the music on the album celebrates life's vibrancy and many colors. The first single, "Ley Lines," was recorded with acoustic guitar, bowed acoustic guitar and synths while "Rise" is quite different and is performed with Koshi chimes and synthesizers along with the sounds of water flowing and birds chirping. Very ambient and more than a little hypnotic, the waves of peaceful sound are soothing and relaxing, taking us to a place free of noise and chaos - for a few minutes, anyway!

"Rise"is available from Amazon, Apple Music/iTunes and streaming platforms including Spotify. "Rise" is a 5 1/2-minute break you'll be glad you took!
