AllMusic Review by

This volume presents a variety of settings of vocal and instrumental music. A good collection, it does not compare with the regrettably out of print Musician Castes in Nepal LP collection edited by Mireille Helffer and released in 1969 by the Paris-based Musee de l'Homme label. (Folkways released three volumes of material from Nepal. These comprise The Gaines of Nepal (4078), Music of a Sherpa Village (4320) and Songs and Dances of Nepal (4101) but it is to Mireille Helffer's collection that one should turn if exploring 'the vinyl legacy of Nepal'.)
