AllMusic Review by

Traditional music of the Langas and Manganiyars. Sarangi holds a notable place in the folklore of Rajasthan and it and the related sindhi sarangi figure prominently in Caroline Swinburne's Saydisc release. This should not be surprising as vocal music ranks so highly in those two musician castes' music-making, and sarangi's reputation for mimicking the human voice is matched only by flute in Hindustani music. Recorded in Rajasthan in January, 1991.
