Villagers Perform at Mona Lisa Lodge, Mulktinath, Nepal by Samuel Corwin
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 I is intimate. Most songs were performed personally by musicians for me and are often playful or humorous.
