The Essential Ravi Shankar

Performers Ravi Shankar

Legacy Recordings | November 1, 2005 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
As the most recognized Indian musician in the world, Ravi Shankar has influenced Western rock and pop, traveled and performed internationally, and broken the barriers between classic precepts and a pan-global approach to music making. Interestingly, Shakar's music has always remained rooted in the Indian classical tradition, no matter how high his international profile; in this way Shankar's music is simultaneously progressive and true to its origins.
This paradox is at the heart of Shankar's music, and is fully evident on the two-disc set THE ESSENTIAL RAVI SHANKAR. Shankar's sitar playing, with his evocative ragas and dizzying runs, entrances, and his level of interplay with his fellow musicians is at a consistently high caliber, achieving a supreme level of harmonic and rhythmic sophistication. There are several Shankar compilations on the market, but the ESSENTIAL ranks among the best.
