I have both those CDs and they are among my favourites of any genre. Another amazing "fusion" CD is Dream by U. Srinivas (he of the electric mandolin fame) & Michael Brook. It also features Nigel Kennedy and others. It was recorded just after Srinivas's traditional Carnatic album Rama Sreerama on the same label (Real World). I have a few albums by Srinivas and really enjoy the vigour and rhythm of the Carnatic sound. It's amazing that an electric string instrument can be incororated into an ancient form and sound like it must have belonged there forever.
