“Without equivocation, one of the finest field recordings to be released by the Swedish label Country & Eastern” – Link to a fabolous review at AAJ
and  a Review by Kent Hunt in Pulse Magazine, feb 2011: “Musically it is in contact with the earth while reaching for the stars… a candidate for the finest field recording of bhajans…that you will ever hear in your life.”


Muthunathesa Bhagvatar, P.S. Devarajan, and K. Shivakumar have a digital-only instrumental album of their own, Karnatic Harmonium, cex13
