Jalebi is a sweet, popular in countries of South Asia, West Asia, North Africa, and East Africa. It is made by deep-frying maida flour batter in pretzel shapes, which are then soaked in sugar syrup. In the centre of London’s Southall district, at 93 The Broadway is ‘Jalebi Junction’, famous for its fresh jalebis.
Through a series of ever-more colourful sections the song takes with it increasing sights, sounds, smells and tastes. The song plays with the sharing of ideas. The voice of the poet and the singer evoking half-sung melodies, the interrupting Sanyo radio transmissions, the Bhangra rhythms and the eventual unleashed vocalise at the end.

Words by Daljit Nagra
What a huge talent Laura Cannell is... A fearless experimentalist and improviser with both spirit and sensitivity.
The Church setting is perfect and obviously inspirational for her,making the pieces sound ethereal and intangible...there but not there,if you will.
Her influences may be medieval but her approach is very firmly contemporary and her playing is strong and (com)passionate.
Very highly recommended without reservation.
Wow!...I feel the strongest urge for cigarette after listening to this. An album that will leave those who go through it, spent, emotionally raw and uplifted.
More of this kind of thing please!...and Mr Lee, its time you gave us an album. Catherine M. Fox
