Sound quality: superlative

Recording date: unknown; CD issue: 2002

The actual contents of this disc do not match the printed contents on the sleeve, which is Chatur Ragamalika. They are being slowly corrected here.

This appears to be a live recording of a standard concert by KVN, featuring mostly obscure material, but in the traditional concert forms. There is also quiet, unnamed vocal support.

Thank you to Gary Roberts for helping to identify most of the tracks.

To purchasing information for this disc.

To Carnatic CD list.
