This album contains a solo performance by Nageswara Rao, a veena player of South Indian classical music, released in 1973 from the "Folk Music Series" supervised by Fumio Koizumi, a leading researcher of world folk music in Japan, and Toyo Nakamura, a music critic who introduced various world music to Japan mainly through Music Magazine. This album features solo performances by Nageswara Rao, a South Indian classical veena player. The veena is a stringed instrument similar to the lute, and it plays a very important role in the performance of South Indian music. Since India is a very large country, the climate and culture are different in the north and south, and these differences are also reflected in the music. Since it is a solo instrument, there is no drone like the tampura, so it sounds like a very free performance.
