The setting of A Hundred Blooms

The poet Jayadeva sets the scene for his epic story, the Gita Govinda. It is spring. Radha searches for her true love, Krishna, on an island in the forest by a river. Her friend sings to her to heighten the mood.

A Hundred Blooms can be heard in its original shorter form on the album Under the Bimba Blossoms. The version heard here features extended improvisations played for us by the talented musicians who contributed to the creation of both CDs.
