The sitar is truly an incredibly beautiful instrument. Now imagine that thing being played by the legendary Ravi Shankar. Prepare to have your third eye opened up

The appeal of certain albums and alas entire types of music, is often meant to be derived in far
different ways than most Westerners are used to. This is one of such albums. These aren't three
songs, these are three ragas. And trying to listen to them as the former will only lead to
disappointment and confusion. The listener is meant to bask in the flowing river of astounding musical
display put on by Shankar. The listener is meant to enter something of a meditative trance when
listening to this. As vague and pretentious as this may come across, the listener must become the
sitar. If Three Ragas is listened to in such ways, then it won't sound merely like pointless repetitive
sitar twanging (as I've heard mentioned elsewhere online). Shankar is a musicians musician, and this
remains true even if not at all versed in traditional music. The skill is utterly mind-numbing.
