Full Circle: Carnegie Hall 2000 (Ravi Shankar)
 Product Description:
FULL CIRCLE won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best World Music Album.

Recorded live at Carnagie Hall, New York, New York on October 6, 2000. Includes liner notes by Timothy White.

Personnel: Ravi Shankar (sitar); Anoushka Shankar (sitar); Tammoy Bose, Bikram Ghosh (tabla); Ajay Sharma, Barry Phillips (tanpura).

Ravi Shankar has played Carnegie Hall numerous times but on this recording it is 62 years after his first performance, hence the title "Full Circle." His lovely daughter, a fine sitar player in her own right, San Diegan Anoushka Shankar, accompanies the master for some memorable playing. To the novice Western ears that are unacustomed to the sitar, the disc begins as though they are tuning their instruments! With a pick here and a lingering note there, the classical Indian music is both a mixture of Eastern mysticism and high energy music that sizzles. All the compositions are by the master sitar player Ravi Shankar and he demosnstrates why he is considered the best at what he does, even at his age(81) he has the dexterity and and stamina to breathe life into the guitar like instrument with incredible intensity. By the time the tablas join in the playing, the group has "warmed up" and the call and response between Ravi and daughter is nothing short of incredible. The complex classical music is explained in full detail in the accompanying insert. The two ragas are broken down into several movements within, allowing for the improvisational skills to play within the discipline of the raga. It was great to revisit the soothing yet exhilirating sounds of Ravi Shankar again and I recommend this disc to old and new fans alike. Try this disc for a trip into the soul of Ravi Shankar as he demonstrates the essence and purity of Eastern music. As explained in the informative booklet, Ravi has achieved Karmasu kausalam or " the purity of purpose, the humble intuitive pursuit of perfection." This is blissfully, joyful music that symblolizes the gifted life of Ravi come full circle, as he passes the torch to his daughter, Anoushka, for a new generation of Shankar music. If you like world music, this has a niche in your musical library, file it under good karma.
