Synopsis:
Originally released in 1971, "Raga" documents the life of sitar master Ravi Shankar in the late 1960s and early 1970s, following him on his return to India to revisit his guru, Bengali multi-instrumentalist and composer, Baba Ustad Allauddin Khan, as well as detailing the satisfactions and challenges of Shankar's life as a musician and teacher in the United States and Europe, initiating those in the West to the exceptional world that is Indian classical music and culture.
Featuring rare footage of performances, rehearsals, and with friends and family, Raga sheds light on Shankar's influences and collaborations, from Ustad Allauddin Khan to his famed dancer brother Uday Shankar, to his associations with Western musicians such as Yehudi Menuhin and George Harrison. Fully narrated by Shankar himself, 'Raga' reveals music as the soul of India and of Shankar's life.
