Originally recorded in the 1950s by author, painter, and Hindu philosopher Alain Daniélou, this collection is the first of its kind to be published and offers a glimpse into the colorful and varied tradition of Indian music, including sacred temple songs, classical improvisations, and popular art music.
This historic series, the first anthology of world music in high fidelity sound, spans five continents and 25 countries. Edited by Alan Lomax, the World Library contains the recordings and annotations of many of world music's finest scholars, including Lomax himself.
