Part of the Lyrichord Archive Series - Never before released recordings on CD from the Lyrichord vaults

This intriguing recording made in 1973 by internationally acclaimed ethnomusicologist Dr. Rosina Schlenker, is a comprehensive journey through the music in the Indian caste system. The history of Indian culture is determined by the caste system which gradually developed since the invasion of the Aryans, the "nobly-born". The middle castes are the actual center of the Indian music culture, represented by highly developed and refined classical ragas and talas.
