DESCRIPTION...

Band/Artist: RAVI SHANKAR...
Ravi Shankar, (Bengali, IPA: [ˈrɔbi ˈʃɔŋkɔr]; 7 April 1920 – 11 December 2012), his name often preceded by the title Pandit, was an Indian musician who was one of the best-known exponents of the sitar in the second half of the 20th century as well as a composer of Hindustani classical music.
Shankar was born in Varanasi and spent his youth touring Europe and India with the dance group of his brother Uday Shankar. He gave up dancing in 1938 to study sitar playing under court musician Allauddin Khan. After finishing his studies in 1944, Shankar worked as a composer, creating the music for the Apu Trilogy by Satyajit Ray, and was music director of All India Radio, New Delhi, from 1949 to 1956.
In 1956, he began to tour Europe and the Americas playing Indian classical music and increased its popularity there in the 1960s through teaching, performance, and his association with violinist Yehudi Menuhin and George Harrison of the Beatles. Shankar engaged Western music by writing concerti for sitar and orchestra and toured the world in the 1970s and 1980s. From 1986 to 1992 he served as a nominated member of Rajya Sabha, the upper chamber of the Parliament of India. In 1999, Shankar was awarded India's highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna. He continued to perform up until the end of his life.

Album Title: RAVI SHANKAR AT THE MONTEREY POP FESTIVAL...RECORDED LIVE...
This is one of Ravi Shankar's most famous recordings. As he describes it, he was very nervous about playing a festival that consisted only of pop and rock artists, and to an audience perhaps unfamiliar with (and uninterested in) classical Indian music.
Shankar's music is extremely reflective on this CD. However, it is not lazy or sluggish, but finely wrought, intense and hypnotic, and melodically rich. Two long pieces are heard here with a short tabla solo, based on a complicated 12 beat rhythmical pattern, heard in the middle. This concert, recorded in 1967 at the height of the flower power movement, brought international fame to the master sitar player at a time when United States audiences were just becoming more globally aware.
