Instinct dictates that anyone who's christened after an instrument is probably a real terror on it. So it is with 34-year-old Ravikiran, a wizard on the 21-string chitravina, and the brainchild behind this magical collaboration with Chinese, Brazilian, and Indian musicians. I usually shun world music supergroups, only because they seem so manufactured and the music so calculated, but the stunning level of virtuosity and improvisation exhibited on these complex pieces from various musical traditions is hard to ignore.
