MISSISSIPPI RECORDS: PANDIT PRAN NATH



Containing two side-length ragas, this record, released on Mississippi "subsidiary" Change Records, was the first US release for noted singer and spiritual leader Pandit Pran Nath. Pran Nath collaborated with minimalist innovators La Monte Young and Terry Riley, and this record is a great example of the far-out, post-lingual aesthetic he helped to develop, and which was further explored by bands like Sun City Girls.

Thanks so much for sharing this. I had been searching for some of his recordings a few years ago after reading of Nath through Henry Flynt. You made my day, and I'm sure many days of listening to come.
