My Favorite Ravi

"I first purchased a used copy of this splendid album when I was a high-school student. It was a hole-in-the-wall record store in Lansdale, PA, and I had never before explored the world of Indian music. The Dhun on this recording was instantly a favorite: the call-and-response at the conclusion between the sitar and tabla remains one of my favorite passages of music, period. Shankar is at the peak of his form here, and the longer meditative raga is serene and magnificent. The initial spritely raga is lovely as well.Perhaps because I took my SATs with the dhun playing in my head to calm me down; perhaps because every copy of this recording I've owned to this point has been damaged in some way, and now the CD brings beautiful crystalline sound; perhaps because the Dhun truly is one of Shankar's most accessible and splendid recordings: whatever the case, I love this recording, and I am grateful for Mr. Shankar's enduring gift of artistry."
