Hats off to the good folks at Third Man Records for bringing How The River Ganges Flows: Sublime Masterpieces Of Indian Violin (1933 – 1952) to modern, musicology-obsessed audiences. Remastered from long unheard South Indian violin ‘78s, the collection is atmospheric and affecting, the melodies flowing from joy to despair.

A thoroughly lovely listen that will surprise and delight those looking for a stirring, spellbinding voyage into the past.
