AllMusic Review by

At 75 years, Hangal may be the last representative of a generation that valued tradition and simplicity over show. She has been singing publicly since the late '20s and still performs with a group that includes her daughter and granddaughter. These performances of ragas from the "Kirana Gharana" are an important rarity amid the multiple recordings of familiar virtuosos. (70:07)
