1/9 – From the Soundboard – Ravi Shankar

Ravi-ShakarFrom the Soundboard is a show that focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, January 9, in tribute on his recent passing we will focus on the talents of sitar extraordinaire, Ravi Shankar.

“Shankar was not one-dimensional. Apart from pursuing a career as a classical performer, he also experimented outside this field. For this reason he has attracted criticism from purists. Some of this, especially during the Beatles era, undoubtedly had an element of jealousy to it, and some was certainly warranted, because Shankar did take many chances. In fact, that was one of the things that kept his music exciting.” [Ken Hunt- AMG]
