    Very, very soothing; almost mystical.
    Somewhere, among my souvenirs, is an LP (mono!) – “The Indo Jazz Suite”.
    The jacket featured a synopsis of the “raga” which made interesting reading.
    I wish the following was available to me then.

    Here’s another – first 40 mins Indian classical, especially the second 20 mins (spiritual and moving memorial for Geo Harrison at Royal Albert Hall, 2002).

    This spectacular Indian music was composed by Ravi Shankar with daughter Anoushka playing the Sitar and then conducting the orchestra (Powerful presentation!). Geo’s wife, Olivia, produced along with Eric Clapton and Jeff Lynne co-producing. Other contributors include Geo’s son Dhani, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Billy Preston (doing Hare Krishna, Hare Rama), etc.

    I replay regularly.

    For those who prefer the mystical, here are meditative chants, courtesy of Ravi Shankar.

    VNM.
