MEDIA REVIEWS
"This unique and thoroughly researched resource provides a dynamic and in depth perspective on world music.... It strikes a balance between wonderful illustrations and comprehensive, scholarly entries. Each regional volume includes a CD sampler of that region's music. This source will have wide appeal to both the novice and expert."
-"Dartmouth Medal, 2003
"The editors and other authors of this volume are to be congratulated for their contributions to our understanding of musical thought and practice among the many peoples from the Indian subcontinent. Especially praiseworthy are the scope, clarity, and sensitivity....Pictures.with their captions, offer valuable information and insight....This volume is an excellent accomplishment by top scholars....[and] the book's vast scope and its incorporation of several hitherto muffled areas of inquiry stand to open new paths and repave old ones in both South Asian studies and ethnomusicology."
-"Journal of American Musical Instrument Society, 2001
"A valuable work for serious music researchers."
