The 60's - Ravi Shankar - Indian music - Bliss !

This video is a documentary about Ravi Shankar and was made in the late 60's.
We see Ravi perform with various musicians, teach (George Harrison for ex.) and follow him to India where he meets his old teacher, and we hear his comments on the 60's interest in all things Indian.

This is a great video not only for those interested in Indian music and culture but also for those who are interested in the late 60's. (The video even has a typical psychedelic part).

I've been a fan of Ravi Shankar for many years so this video was heaven sent, it is great to be able to see the master playing and to hear his thougts on Indian music and culture.

I also highly recommend his books, "My music my life" and Raga Mala and of course all his great recordings.

Ravi is without a doubt one of the greatest musicians ever, regardless of style and his performances are always a treat.

Also recommended is the DVD Ravi Shankar in portrait from BBC.
