Indian music

Content description The first section of Track 1 (30.5 minutes), which is from a phonograph record, begins with an unnamed English-speaking man introducing the three performers from South India (my spelling of their names is conjectural). The next cut (apparently excerpted from field recordings) (c. 46 minutes) consists of a man reciting texts (in Tamil, Sanskrit?). The next 16 minutes consists of excerpts of live music recorded in a public setting. The track concludes with a soloist playing a kind of flute. Track 2 consists entirely of a man reciting sacred texts (in Tamil? in Sanskrit?).
