Heartache in the Subcontinent: Satayjit Ray- Charulata (The Lonely Wife) 1964


Here is a really short, really beautiful record: the soundtrack to Charulata, by Indian filmmaker Satayjit Ray. I have never seen the film, sad to say, but the music is subtle, sophisticated, and heartbreaking in a gorgeous, quietly insistent way. Highly recommended.

One of the songs was used in the Wes Anderson film The Darjeeling Limited. Just so you know.

The Lonely Wife 192

Nice! I've been looking around for this but it's hard to find.

Tried Third Floor of course but no luck. Seriously nice, only like 10 minutes long but its a universe of beauty.
