AllMusic Review by

Balamuralikrishna, the leading male singer in the southern Carnatic classical style, is particularly famous as a singer of krithis, religous songs analogous to the northern bhajans. This CD bringing together some of his most popular is something of a peak in Carnatic semiclassical music, with much focus on vocal technique, accompanied by a duo or trio with violin leads and mridangam percussion.
