Album Notes
Composed in the fourth millennium before our own time, the Rig Veda remains the most ancient living text. In its entirety, Rig Veda is a collection of over 1000 hymns, which contain the mythology of the Hindu gods. Maintained throughout by an unbroken oral tradition, it is still an active, sustaining force in the religious and philosophical Indian tradition.

Jean LeMee translated several of these from Sanskrit into four languages (English, French, German and Spanish). This concert brought them to life with a live reading of the English translation by actor/poet Chrys Salt, with violin improvisation by Michael Braudy, at the Bakehouse in South-West Scotland.
