From the Publisher:

Ravi Shankar is the man christened by George Harrison as the 'Godfather of world music'. His autobiography is superbly designed and boxed with two CDs, the first of which includes a track recorded with George Harrison and Ringo Starr. The second disc was specially recorded for this project at Abbey Road Studios. The book is bound in rich Indian silk, and also presented is a packet of finest-quality Special Durbar Agarbathi incense sticks--the personal favourites of Ravi and George. 2,000 copies bound in full Indian silk (choice from four varying colours) with boxed CDs and incense sticks. Housed in a solander box. Autographed by Ravi Shankar.

From Publishers Weekly:

Shankar, a sitar player known as the godfather of world music for his role in opening Western ears to sounds from the East, gives an honest, in-depth look at his life and work in this prodigious autobiography. Like a fine musical composition, Shankar beautifully narrates his life's milestones--his early years in India, his travels as a performer in Paris during the 1930s, his breakthrough in the West and rise to stardom during the '60s, his turbulent personal life in the '70s and '80s--while periodically returning to his basic theme: his love of music and the sitar. Throughout, Shankar builds on his 1968 book, My Music, My Life, which provided a general introduction to Indian music. He describes his performances in U.S. music festivals (Woodstock, he says, was " a terrifying experience" where "the music was incidental"); he also weaves in tales of people he affected (Gene Kelly, Richard Burton, Peter Sellers, Marlon Brando and, of course, editor Harrison), and those who influenced him--most importantly Ustad Allauddin Khan, the classical musician and pioneer of modern Hindustani instrumental music. Along with the enormous number of photographs that accompany this dense and lengthy work, Shankar presents letters and musical transcriptions to produce a history of Indian music during the 20th century. Although Shankar has been somewhat taken for granted in recent years due to his long-standing popularity, this book convincingly reasserts his historical importance. (Jan.)

Descrizione libro Genesis Publications Limited, 1997. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. Ravi Shankar is the world`s foremost sitar-virtuoso and composer, the man christened by George Harrison as the `Godfather of World Music`, who spearheaded the international spread of Indian culture.

RAGA MALA features a remarkable collection of photographs and documents drawn almost entirely from the personal archives of Ravi Shankar and George Harrison. A large number of these have never been published before. Classically elegant in design and presented to the very highest of standards, it is a beautiful record of an extraordinary life.
