Prayer Reading in Shiva Temple, Varanasi by Samuel Corwin

Album Description

I traveled from the south of India to Nepal and back again in the winter and spring of 2015.  The experience changed my life.  As much of these recordings are an expression of the place and temperament that is India and Nepal, I believe in a way they tell somewhat of my story, too (though in a different language).  All recordings are raw; only the length of time was edited in any way.     Volume II is music of the collective.  The performances are usually devotional or ritualistic in some manner, designed to bring performers and participants together.  The tone will
waver between the celebratory and the solemn.  A majority of the performances were done in a public sphere and I was only one among many.
