Yes, I agree. Wished to have more from this series, especially also some of their folk music, for example from Sindh. Some of their cassettes I already have posted, also one from times when they were still called National Institute of Folk Heritage.
One can find a good number of their cassettes on this blog:

unfortunately my old scanner broke down and with my other scanner I can't make good scans of objects, only of flat covers. Even the LP labels are sometimes difficult to scan.
