Norating

Phillip Glass, the minimalist composer, and Ravi Shankar, the legendary Indian sitar player, come together and create breathtakingly beautiful music together. All of the songs are of a good length 7-10 minutes. The first track, “Offering”, contains no sitar playing but is a beautiful slow piece. It flows well into the second track, “Sadhanipa”, which starts out sounding more like Glass, but Shankar enters and slowly the piece becomes more Shankar than Glass. “Channels and winds”, track 3, is carried on a beautiful female voice (no words) like the wind carries sound, again the sitar sits this one out. “Ragas in Minor Scale”, track 4, is a very interesting piece. It is a raga (a traditional Indian style of music) with sitar and tabla accompanied by western instrumentation. “Meetings Along the Edge” has very distinctly Phillip Glass sound with very Indian sounding instrumental voices. The ability to conjoin these two distinct types of music into one song speaks volumes about their songwriting ability (and I’m not even a big Phillip glass fan, but I have to give credit when it is due!).
