'Benares Ghat' - Ravi Shankar teaches a new piece to his students

The sitar & Indian music - A personal introduction by Ravi Shankar

Illustrated booklet which includes a personal hand-written note from Ravi Shankar

'a real gem. It is, as it says on the box, the 'definitive account' of one of the 20th century's greatest musicians ...a demonstration-class package.'

'two seductive performances...the film is gorgeous, full of beautifully-composed imagery...'

'this is without doubt an essential addition to the collection and a collectors piece for the future. The DVD shows not only the great musicianship of the man but his compassion and kindness, along with his determination to use his success to pass on something of worth in the form of the academy he is building in his native India.'

'This is a superb production and should be in the collections of anyone in the least bit interested in Indian classical music… Both audio and video quality are superb, and the BBC should be congratulated for this release.'
