· The sensuous charm in Ashok Roy’s portrayal .. cast a spell .. moving .. Roy’s style is easily captivating — The Daily Bombay March 1997
It was 3.00am in the morning Easter Saturday. All was silent except for the tingling sensation of the music from the evening’s concert in my mind with the streaming moonlight casting its shadows. I was feeling exhilarated, inspired and moved. I was in a sleepy town of
Bendigo near Melbourne in 1986 and I recall finding my home in his music. This was my first meeting with Pandit Ashok Roy.
Listen to the following excerpts from a CD launched in 1994. Pandit Ashok Roy accompanied by Parthasarthy Mukherjee on Tabla. Produced by Larrikin Records this CD is no longer available and has sadly been discontinued.
