|"Nimbus Records, in collaboration with a team of musicians and musicologists from the Rotterdam Conservatory of Music (under the direction of Joep Bor), has come out with The Raga Guide, a handsomely produced book and 4 CD set which gives short, cohesive descriptions of 74 Hindustani ragas, musical examples (in a well-executed mix of Indian solfege syllables and staff notation) — and short, cohesive performances of the material by four highly-respected performers, instrumentalists Buddhadev DasGupta (sarod ) and Hariprasad Chaurasia (bansuri ) and khyal vocalists Shruti Sadolikar-Katkar and Vidyadhar Vyas... It's a hell of an impressive package." - Warren Senders, RootsWorld|
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
