Learn the basics of the raga, the sitar and the tabla with India's master, Ravi Shankar. The examples are played by his daughter, sitar player Anoushka Shankar, and tabla virtuoso Tanmoy Bose.
When Ravi Shankar visited NPR in 2005, he reminisced about his youth as a dancer and about the joy he has experienced teaching his daughter Anoushka to become a master of his own instrument, the sitar. With radio host Fred Child at his side, Shankar also launched into an engaging introduction to the basics of Indian classical music, with examples played by Anoushka Shankar and tabla virtuoso Tanmoy Bose.
