Man Records’ How The River Ganges Flows in stores 9/18

VIA PRESS RELEASE | Third Man Records is excited to announce How The River Ganges Flows, a compilation of rare and unheard Indian violin music from 1933–1952.

The collection, which was compiled by record collector and archivist Christopher King (Why The Mountains Are Black, Alexis Zoumbas) and features artwork by R. Crumb, will be released on September 18, 2020 on LP (with a bonus 7″), CD and digital. How The River Ganges Flows is a transcendent collection of Carnatic violin performances captured on 78 rpm disc between 1933 and 1952. Most of these sublime recordings have not been heard since they were first etched in shellac decades ago.

These melodies are ethereal and transporting: meditative. The rhythms undulate from despair to ecstasy, often within the same phrase. Remastered from the collection of Christopher King along with a set of deep notes, this music is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
