Prog Not Frog Radio Presents: The Voice of The Moon #009, With The Herbalist (This Week We Go to India)

This week we'll make another imaginary journey, this time to the east. We'll be listening to contemporary music, but under the influence of the thousands years old music tradition of India.

We'll experienced the mysteries and enigmas of one of the oldest musical heritages of human civilization and we'll see what happens when this tradition blends with our modern musical ideas.

Hindu Music is still developing in front of our eyes, nowadays interacting, influencing and being influenced by genres like Jazz, Rock, Electronic and
other folk expressions like Celtic, for example.

In this journey we'll learn about the experiments done by the french composer Thierry Zaboitzeff, the devotional songs beautifully sung by Ilan Chester, the virtuoso sitar playing of the Spanish Luis Paniagua and of course, a rendition to the man that has done most to give us the music from India: Ravi Shankar.

It will be another eclectic mix, seasoned with the modern touch of experimentalism.

I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed doing it for you.

Keep Listening...!!!

Nice one, Thanks! Psychic Elephant by Shankar is among my favorites,
but his playing is good, anywhere!
Appreciate some of the others I'm not familiar with at all.

Thanks, the music is awesome. I've been looking for the first Gunter Schikert lp for years. I have "Uberfallig" but heard that there exists an earlier one, perhaps self-titled, from the early 70s.
