This seems to be compiled by someone who knows about Indian Classical Music, but unfortunately there are no sleeve notes to explain this. "Guide" is use as the name of the publisher, but don't be mistaken: this CD is not in any way a guide. You can find information online, but I would have expected at least a brief sleeve note to explain. Don't expect to learn anything by listening to it other than to have an idea of what Indian Classical Music sounds like. On the other hand, I haven't found any other discs with this kind of content. Such a wasted opportunity; it could have been so much better.
