SHANKAR, RAVI & ALI AKBAR KHAN - MASTER MUSICIANS OF INDIA (LP)


"Seminal recording by the two men most responsible for opening the West to Indian music. Master of the sitar, Ravi Shankar was, of course, famous for his legendary influence on the Beatles, but this recording was made for the American jazz label Prestige prior to their meeting. Perhaps lesser intertwined with the pop music world, Ali Akbar-Khan is nonetheless one of Indias greatest musicians, and the worlds best sarod player. Shankar and Khan play together on both ragas, backed by a tabla player and a tamboura player. The tamboura player is Nodu C. Mullick on side A, a highly respected instrument maker who made Shankars sitar)." (label info)
