Hindu Mythology

The colorful deities and demons of India...

GANDHARVAS

Hindu Music Spirits

Celestial Musicians

These are the musical equivalent of the Apsaras. They often perform at the same festivities, with complementary dancing, singing and swinging. They come in many mistily mystical shapes and forms.

Unfortunately the Gandharvas have never had a recording contract. We hope to audition them some time.
