The eleventh track in my Ramayana project, a series that attempts to interpret in music the great Indian epic.

King Ravana, lord of the demons, kept a beautiful palace on the island of Lanka; inside were his hordes of wives and consorts (he was a major player, quite virile and attractive, in a twisted sort of way), sumptuous furnishings, succulent delights for the senses, and generally every pleasure and vice that sentient creatures could imagine.

One can understand why King Rama's people never quite believed that Sita wasn't tempted when in captivity there...

A beautifully rich concoction of sounds. So much atmosphere, I can easily imagine myself standing in this other world you've created.

Bravo.

Great build, starting with the tabla. I like the guitar-like riffs you have in the middle section. The cowbell and synth (?) are great, too. It keeps it from being strictly 'Indian' atmosphere, and gives a nod to other music styles.

Mmmm... MMM! Rich and exhilarating, full of that wonderful east Indian rhythmic goodness. Fabulous instrumentation compliments another solid composition for your Ramayana series. I remained enthralled all the way through.
