    Muttuswami Diksitar was one of the “Carnatic trinity”, the three most renowned composer-musicians of the South Indian classical tradition. On this album, singer S. Ramanathan performs three Diksitar works, accompanied by Alandur Natarajan on violin and Visvanatha Iyer on mrdanga (a type of drum). — Folkways

    Album cover for three works composed by Muttuswami Diksitar: Navagraha Krtis (“The 9 Planets”), Caturdasa Ragamalika (“The 14 Worlds”) and Sri Guruna. Released on Smithsonian Folkways 1981. Cover designed by Ronald Clyne with artwork by S. Rajam. The typography uses two weights of ITC Benguiat Gothic (1979) in all caps. The diacritical marks needed for the International Alphabet of Sanskrit Transliteration (IAST) are probably custom additions.
