India through the looking Glass


Readers' erudition never failed me yet. Shimmy very quickly identified the two musicians in the foreground of the session photo above as Philip Glass and Ravi Shankar. The location and date are Madras, 1990,and the recording was the collabaration between Glass and Shankar titled Passages which resulted in the CD seen below.


My opening line is a parody of Gavin Bryar's Jesus' blood never failed me yet. It was Ravi Shankar who featured in my applause in the wrong place story. Philip Glass once said 'World music is the new classical'. Passages proves him right, so does Kundun. Now sample the essence of India in words and images.
