EMI's double-CD collection of Ravi Shankar's works including Western instruments, however, is one of the exceptions, for it adds a great deal even to the conversation carried on by those who have paid attention to the career of the man widely considered modern-day India's greatest musician. The attraction here, in a nutshell, is that this CD set brings together music recorded between 1967 and 1982, much of it only sporadically available up to now. There are two concertos for Shankar's sitar (a large Indian lute with sympathetically resonating strings) and orchestra, plus works he wrote for collaborations with violinist Yehudi Menuhin and flutist Jean-Pierre Rampal. For purposes of comparison, there's also one performance by Shankar alone.

Impact Soundworks Sitar Nation v2.0 KONTAKT | 1.53 Gb

The most deeply sampled sitar, tambura, tabla and baya library ever released! Includes multiple mic positions, all important playing techniques, FX patches, and MIDI grooves. We came up with the idea for Sitar Nation in mid-2007, after noticing that despite the growing popularity of ethnic instrument libraries, few products sampled non-Western instruments with a level of depth expected from a modern sample library.

This is a sample library project we've been wanting to complete for some time and I believe we have something really special here for you! This instrument has a distinct and unique voice. Now that it is available as a virtual instrument I have no doubt that it's musical effectiveness can be greatly expanded beyond of solely creating a groovy 60s vibe.

Ustad Vilayat Khan is IMO, the greatest Indian sitar player evolved in 20th Century. He not only conquered the sitar world, but experimented in wide range of ragas that any artist simply don't even dare to meet those high standards. Vilayat Khan has extensively recorded the Indian Classical Music all through his career that spanned nearly 7 decades. So, It's very challenging thing to summarize his career in a box set. However, for this 3 CD box, Saregama label pulled Vilayat Khan's some of very important music recorded between 1955 to 1990. IMO, A Holy Grail for the Indian Classical fans. Enjoy.

Ali Akhbar Khan: The son of influential Hindustani musician Allaudin Khan, Ali Akbar Khan was one of the Eastern world's greatest musicians. A master of the sarod, a 25-stringed, lute-like, Indian instrument, Khan brought the Northern Indian classical music to the international stage. A five-time Grammy nominee, Khan was called, by Yehudi Menuhin, "an absolute genius, the greatest musician in the world." Tracing his ancestral roots to Mian Tansen, a 16th century musician in the court of Emperor Akbar, Khan began studying music at the age of three.
