Spirit of Raga £57

Computer Music - - Reviews -

An enor­mous set of fe­male In­dian vo­cal sam­ples – 500 in to­tal – cat­e­gorised at the top level into Car­natic (North In­dian) and Hin­dus­tani (South In­dian), then ar­ranged by style (Clas­si­cal, Swaras, Tra­di­tional, De­vo­tional, etc), song and raga within that. The per­for­mances, by singer Ran­jini He­manth, are breath­tak­ing, and while we’d have liked a few more Bols and Solkattu (vo­cal beats, loosely speak­ing), Spirit of Raga is clearly a labour of love that me­dia com­posers, dance mu­sic pro­duc­ers and any­one else in need of au­then­tic In­dian vo­cals will get end­less mileage from. www.times­pace.com
