Product Description

Ananda Shankar-Ananda Shankar And His Music



Originally released in 1975.

Electronic, Folk, World, & Country, Funk / Soul
Psychedelic, Experimental

"This genre-busting 1975 album seamlessly fuses the traditional music of Ananda Shankar s homeland, India, with the heavy psych-funk of the West, where hed spent a good deal of time. Featuring the dancefloor killers Streets Of Calcutta and Dancing Drums alongside a handful of mellower tracks, the original, India-only LP has long been one of the worlds most sought-after records. Psychedelic breaks and beats at their most beautiful, and for the first time on CD." Thats the description from the label one-sheet, but that doesnt tell you the half of it-this is not pseudo-lounge sitar pop/psych like his oft-reissued Reprise LP, with its covers of Jumpin jack Flash etc. no, no, no, for this little disc has got some serious groove to it, with sitar/funk action, and interesting compositions that make this recording much more than the sum of its exotic parts
