Editors’ Notes

The relationship between Ravi Shankar and George Harrison is well-documented and at least partly responsible for the latter's spiritual inclinations and the rock audience's acceptance of Indian music. That relationship is examined on Collaborations, a collection of three of Shankar's albums which Harrison produced and, in some cases, performed on. Also included in the collection is extraordinary video footage from a 1974 Royal Albert Hall performance. Collaborations comes with iTunes LP which features extensive liner notes, a 56-page digital booklet with a forward by Philip Glass, more than 50 photos, video footage, and more.

Absolutely Relaxing!!!!

I really never heard about this artist and I never heard this kind of music often but all I can say is, that I really love it. For me Asato Maa is the best track on this album and this compilation is one of my favourite chillout ones beside the series called Dolomiti Super Chill.
Perfect!!!! Love it!!!!

At last!

Happy birthday Maestro.
Does it need to be added that Ravi Shankar is one of the greatest musicians of our time?
He has dazzled and inspired thru decades of performances and recordings.
This is a piece of history: when not only was Ravi Shankar emerging in the west, but George Harrison was finding spiritual fulfilment in the east. Many of these "songs" are Vedic mantras. They are well known these days, but were not so well known in the west back then.
I am specially grateful to find this collection is more complete than some in the past. I have been looking for the "overture" for decades, it's sort of India "lite" but was my first exposure to this incredibly rich musical tradition. There are many beautiful tracks here...

Ravi is Great!!!

You have never heard of Ravi Shankar. You are in for a real treat as you listen to his music. Check out his performance at the Montery Pop Festival. It Will Blow Your Mind, as it did all the other artists and concert goers by the looks on their faces. Enjoy!

Rabindra Shankar Chowdery, aka Ravi Shankar, was born on April 7, 1920, in Varanasi, India, into a well-off orthodox Brahmin family.
