This new Musical Explorers series from ARC Music makes available, often for the first time, a valuable range of historical films and audio recordings gathered from all over the world. Deen Bhattacharya presents his film ''Krishna in Spring'' made in 1969, depicting lively and extraordinary scenes from the Holi festival in Krishna's heartland of Braj, Uttar Pradesh, India. The accompanying album includes performances from 1954 and 1968 in this second release of the Musical Explorers series (curated by Simon Broughton). ''The artistic expression - both classical and folkloric - of the theme of Radha and Krishna's love has taken many different parts of India. The most notable among these are poetry, painting, dance-drama and music.'' (Deben Bhattacharya)
