AllMusic Review by

This wonderful idea is, like so many wonderful ideas, quite a simple one. This series shows the ways in which three musical cultures have treated a central Hindu legend. Most of the 71-minute Indian CD is devoted to a 1979 recording of the Kalakendra dance drama, "Ramlila," a Maharashtra song from the tournament episode, and a Carnatic kriti hymn by the great M.S. Subbulakshmi.
