Ravi Shankar is one of the prevailing musical geniuses of the current age. He largely introduced the West to Indian classical music in the \'60s. Shankar'S pristine playing of an incredibly complex instrument (Sitar), the way he can evoke every mood, from serenity to storm, and, when the occasion arises, improvise like a master--which, of course, is exactly what he is.
Even in this supposedly digital age, almost all westerners know about India beyond turbans and the Taj Majal is the sound of the sitar.
Classical Indian music has no equal as a source of solace and inspiration. It'S impossible to give it a serious listen without closing your eyes and drifting off on a journey of imagination. It'S truly an auditory narcotic: the mind simply refuses to be tied down.
