This Audio CD presents a delectable fare of Ashtapadi from Gita Govindam, poetic literature of Jayadeva (12th century A.D). There are 6 tracks in this CD tuned by Kalaimamani Dr. S.V. Ramanan and sung by none other than Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam, (Padmasri & Padmabhushan Awardee) the legendary Bharatanatyam danseuse. The tune and the stirring & soulful voice of Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam add a new dimension to the profound lyrics that celebrate the passionate intensity of love between Radha & Krishna. Each Ashtapadi has a coherent explanation of the context and meaning by Dr. Padma Subrahmanyam. In short, an aural delight and an ideal choreographic tool.
This audio CD comes with a booklet containing the Sanskrit verses along with their transliteration in English.
