The Music of the East


I think we need one more thread to share music on - so, this one is for Eastern music. All kinds of it - ancient and modern, classical and folk, from the countries that lay East of Europe /actually, why not from "East from where you are"? I think this would be cool/- the Middle East, the Asian East, the Far East, the Pacific Oceanic East.

I'm going to start with my beloved Ravi Shankar, in a fantastic duet with a violin - an East-West harmony, beautiful to behold.

And another of my all time favorites - Jan Garbarek and Ustad Fateh Ali Khan, from the album "Ragas and Sagas"
