Original and best fusion,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ananda Shankar (Audio CD)
This is one of the earliest (and best) attempts at fusing Indian and western musical styles and even today it does not sound dated. The first tracks are version of some classic rock songs with some sitar in the mix, but others are more traditionally Indian in structure (e.g. folk or Hindustani classical). 'Snow Flower' is based on a Bengali tune and 'Sagar' is (I think) in raga Malkauns. Ananda Shanakar was a fine sitar player (a nephew of Ravi) and a musician who could seamlessly assimilate both western and eastern musical ideas.
