While compiling an anthology of music made at the People's Temple in Jonestown, I came across a track that suffered from numerous recording defects. In attempting to correct them, I accidentally created the basic track for "Raga Jonestown".

After further manipulation of the basic track, I present to you the finished raga.

"Raga Jonestown" is a nighttime raga. It is divided into two parts, Alap and Vilambit. Some Drut is used, but subtly.

It is not necessary to listen to "Raga Jonestown" at a loud volume. In fact, quiet listening may better suit the mood of the raga.
