5.0 out of 5 stars highly recommended January 27, 2009

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
this is a great dvd . the overall performance is outstanding . if you like east indian music i highly recommend . the sound recording is extra good also . there are 2 long ragas performed . the first around 35 minutes . the 2nd around 50 minutes . the 50 minute raga is extra cool because , as ravi explains, the raga is set up to improvise a little more than usual and introduce "new" ragas within . the tabla player has an amazing solo towards the end of the 2nd raga . ravi of course is simply put, a true master . the sarod player has a nice complementary voice to shankar . he plays allot of counter rhythms to the tabla during solos which contrasts ravi well . 2 tamboura players accompany for added drones. also a great bonus interview and comments with explanations of indian music by ravi and other musicians and people .

5.0 out of 5 stars Very satisfying performance July 10, 2011

Ravi Shankar, India's most celebrated musician, now 91, has received many honors and awards, including the three highest civil honors of India. George Harrison called him "The Godfather of World Music", and legendary jazz musician John Coltrane, named his son after Ravi. Ravi Shankar has composed three concertos for sitar and orchestra, the most recent in 2008. He is also the creator of many other compositions, as well as collaborations with Phillip Glass and George Harrison. In 2008 he played what was billed as his last European concert. His 2011 tour includes dates in the United Kingdom.

The Concert For World Peace was recorded November 9, 1993 at The Royal Albert Hall in London, England. I've had the dvd about a week, and have already watched it several times.

The first raga begins with Ravi Shankar on the sitar, and the two women who play the "background drone instruments", Punita Gupta on the treble tanpura, and Gauri Bapat on bass tanpura. Ravi begins slowly, playing and plucking, almost as if tuning the sitar. He even reaches up a couple of times to adjust the tuning keys. After a few minutes, as the tempo picks up, and Ravi's playing becomes more fluid, sarodist Partho Sarathy begins to play. The sarod is much smaller than the sitar, and is held and played, more like a guitar. As the tempo becomes even faster, Zakir Hussain joins in on tabla, and the raga builds to a climax.

It's amazing how Ravi conducts the music, mostly by just looking at the other players, sometimes nodding his head, or using a certain facial expression.

The second raga, begins with all musicians joining in, and has more improvisation than the first.

An incredible tour-de-force. Such control of an awesome instrument.

To me his entire assemblage was nothing short of watching BLISS translated through their instruments. A joy to see such perfection!!!
