Review Text From the Legacy International label, a small imprint based in Pismo Beach, CA, comes this compilation of Nepalese music. While this is definitely not the standard Himalayan musical fare, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Whereas the usual fare of Himalayan music involves solo vocals, frame drums, and the like in an almost entirely rhythmic usage, this album is overloaded with various flutes and tablas (or perhaps a dholak?). The different tracks on the album can barely be differentiated at times, but they continue to provide a nice upbeat pace and tone throughout. The music is cheerful and light. For someone looking for nice background music, this would be perfection. However, for someone intending to delve into the musical culture of Central Asia, other albums might be better suited to provide a wider spectrum of features. ~ Adam Greenberg
