Ananda Shankar (1970)

The legendary 1970 Reprise record from Ananda Shankar, one of the first recordings to fuse Eastern and Western musical forms! Shankar came by his artistic innovation honestly; both his parents were renowned dancers and his uncle was Ravi Shankar, and here he explores the connection between Indian and psychedelic music with the use of sitar, tabla and moog.

The Ananda Shankar Experience & State of Bengal - Walking On

This collaboration combines elements of classical composition updated with breakbeats and modern musical influences and for once this doesnt come across as an amalgation of conflicting musical styles but creates a style of its own.

Ananda Shankar - A Life In Music

Ananda Shankar was born in Almora, Uttar Pradesh in 1942. The son of dancers Uday and Amala Shankar and the nephew of Pandit Ravi Shankar, he was raised in an artistically creative atmosphere. He studied sitar with Dr Lalmani Mishra in Banaras at the Hindu University. In the late sixties he travelled to the West Coast of America when the flower power generation was in full swing. The pop world was fascinated by all things sitar. Informal jam sessions with Jimi Hendrix in 1969 soon resulted in attention from producers at Warners Reprise. The ensuing LP Ananda Shankar saw the young musician flexing his skills as composer and arranger. It featured amazing cover versions of the Rolling Stones' "Jumping Jack Flash" and The Doors "Light My Fire", ensuring the record's cult success then, and to this day.

Didier Malherbe - Zeff

This is some serious new age jazz flute juice. Breathy tube scapes from outer and inner space to rythyms and shapes new yet ancient. A very experimental work from Mr. Malherbe that will blow your mind!
