    This is a great overview. Note, however, it is called "Glimpses..." for a good reason. Although there are twenty-five songs, they are all short.

    This is definitely a good starting point for music lovers to start with Indian classical music. The artists featured here are all very great and they represent different styles and instruments used in Indian classical context. It is a great idea to explore their albums after listening to these samples. My most favorite instrumentalists are: Ravi Shankar Shivkumar Sharma Hariprasad Chaurasia Ali Akbar Khan Nikhil Banerjee Zakir Hussain Bismillah Khan U Srinivas And Vocalists: Jasraj [one of the most melodious and deep voices] Rajan & Sajan Mishra Bhimsen Joshi M. Balamuralikrishna [especially his devotional songs]
  • A window into the sublime world of Indian classical

    This album is good as a sample, an excellent choice for listeners who are new to Indian classical music. The best thing is that so many maestros of both North & South Indian classical music are covered here. Also, it gives a good intro to so many different instruments and styles.
