    Legendary sitar-player Ravi Shankar is undoubtedly the subcontinent's most famous musician. On the raga 'Megh' ('cloud'), he summons rainclouds on the sitar's bass-voiced cousin, the surbahar, before switching to sitar to produce the sound of rainfall. Over the course of her career Asha Bhosle has recorded an astonishing tally of some 13,000 songs and sung playback for generations of leading actresses. Written by the celebrated R.D. Burman and the lyricist Gulzar, 'Katra Katra' is from the film Ijaazat (1987), and showcases Asha's exceptional vocal artistry and features her harmonizing with herself. The older sister of Asha and one of India's greatest vocalists in her own right, Lata Mangeshkar is one of the most popular playback singers of our age. 'Man Dole Mera Tan Dole' was a major song in her early career and is taken from the box-office hit film Nagin (1954).

    The Rough Guide To The Music Of India serves up a dozen dishes from the country's greatest traditional and experimental kitchen in the hope that, once tasted and relished, such flavours linger on the palate and can never be untasted. The music of Grammy nominated artist Debashish Bhattacharya can also be explored on the bonus disc.

    Enhanced Added Value: This CD contains a data track that includes music and travel from the Rough Guide books.

    'this excellent Rough Guide disc covers a vast cross-section of Indian music' 4**** stars, Limelight (Australia)
