Ravi Shankar: The Concert For World Peace Debuts On DVD
Published November 2, 2007

Ravi Shankar, the internationally acclaimed sitar virtuoso, performer, composer, and master of Indian classical music has enlightened a generation of music fans around the world. Now for the first time, Shankar’s legendary Concert For World Peace, performed at London’s Royal Albert Hall on November 9, 1993, will be available on DVD.

The music, three enchanting Rajas, has been remixed in lush Dolby 5.1 surround sound specifically for the DVD release. In addition, the DVD includes “Ravi Shankar: The Soul of Tradition,” a 20 minute documentary featuring never-before-seen photos from Shankar’s personal collection, as well as fascinating new interviews with Shankar, daughter Anoushka Shankar, composer Phillip Glass and more.

From his celebrated performances at Woodstock and the Monterey Pop Festival, to his mentorship of the late Beatle George Harrison, Grammy-winning Ravi Shankar has been a pioneering force in the world of music. His association with musicians such as Yehudi Menuhin, Jean Pierre Rampal, Zubin Mehta, Andre Previn, George Harrison, John Coltrane, Philip Glass, and others established ground-breaking trends and standards that have set him apart in the annals of classical and contemporary music.

An invaluable addition to any music-lover’s collection, Ravi Shankar: The Concert For World Peace - Live At Royal Albert Hall captures the unmatched brilliance of a great performer who has spent six decades perfecting his craft and the fleeting beauty of a gorgeously improvised performance that can never be repeated. It includes Shankar’s performances of Raga Jait: Alap-Jor-Jhala and Raga Misra Khammaj: Slow and Fast Gats, accompanied by world-renowned Tabla player Zakire Hussain and Shankar’s own disciple (and virtuoso in his own right) Sarodist Partho Sarathy. Together they take you on a spellbinding musical odyssey of improvisational mastery.

The Concert For World Peace DVD arrives in stores from A&E Home Video on November 20 for $24.95.
