Both this studio recording and its companion were made in Tokyo in September 1985. It pairs Manilal Nag with one of the finest tabla players of his generation, Mahaprush Misra (1934-1987), a musician probably best known for his sterling work with the sarod virtuoso Ali Akbar Khan -- especially on the Signature Series. It features raga performances coupled with a concluding tabla track and is a fine testimony to their skills.
