2015 repress. Three Ragas, Ravi Shankar's 1956 western debut, remains one of his finest albums ever recorded. Although Shankar was already an accomplished and well-known musician in India in 1956, he was still almost completely unknown in the west. The album, consisting of three ragas, was meant to be a kind of introduction to Shankar's music for the western listener. Side A consists of "Raga Jog," an evening raga that expresses the yearning of a longing soul, while side B consists of a morning devotional raga, "Raga Ahir Bhairav," as well as a raga of the southern Indian Carnatic tradition, "Raga Simhendra Madhyaman." Features Chatur Lal, one of the best tabla players of all time. Includes liner notes. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl.
