Flute & Sitar Music of India

Though under Ravi Shankar's name, Flute and Sitar Music of India is actually a collaborative effort between Ravi Shankar, Vijay Raghav Rao , and Alla Rakha. There is a long and very beautiful raga here titled "Raga Malkauns-Alap and Gat in Jhaptal," which allows for long and delightful interplay between all instruments.

Finally, there is the brief "Meditational Raga of Northern India," which uses space, drone, and silence as meditation checkpoints. In sum, this is a beautiful collection, and though not recorded terribly well, it does display some important aspects of Indian classical music by true masters of the form. ~ Thom Jurek, Rovi

    Beautiful

    This album may have only four songs, but they are long and very beautiful. It's great for sleeping, or fun. It's also wonderful for dancing.

    Serene

    The album consists of some beautiful pieces of classical north indian music, but it pains a bit as the names of the artists are not only missing from the information provided by the producers. i think it's totally unfair to them.
