Notes and Editorial Reviews

The name Natraj is derived from the Sanskrit nata, meaning dance, and raja, meaning king. The ancient traditions of India depict the figure of Natraj beating out the cosmic rhythm of the universe, destroying ignorance and renewing life's energy. We created the music on this album by drawing on diverse musical traditions from around the world. Our primary influences are North Indian classical music, West African traditional music, and jazz. We also incorporate elements of music of Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Asia. - Phil Scarff, December 1989 The name Natraj is derived from the Sanskrit nata, meaning dance, and raja, meaning king.
