9780706987539: My Music, My Life: Complete Manual on How to Play the Sitar

My Music, My Life chronicles the extraordinary career of India’s best-known musician. Through his relationships with George Harrison and Philip Glass in the 1960s, Ravi Shankar brought Indian classical musical to the world stage and became one of the most influential musicians of the era, even performing at Woodstock in 1969. Here, Shankar describes in his own words his transformation from a young traveling dancer to a Grammy Award winning, internationally recognized musician. At once a compelling memoir, a history of Indian classical music, and a manual on how to play the sitar, the book is as much about living a musical life as it is about the art of music. Originally published in 1968, this edition features a new foreword by Philip Glass, stunning, never-before-published photographs, and a new final chapter detailing Shankar’s hope for the preservation of Indian classical music.

About the Author:

Pandit Ravi Shankar, the legendary Hindustani classical musician, was born into a musically-inclined Bengali family in Banaras, India. The melodious strains of his music swept across the globe, making him a unifying phenomenon of music in the East and the West. His peerless genius contributed enormously to world music traditions and led to innovative collaborations with other leading world musicians like George Harrison and Yehudi Menuhin. He is a recipient of numerous awards and titles including the Bharat Ratna, the Magsaysay, 2 Grammys and 14 doctorate degrees.

Born in Baltimore in 1937, Philip Glass studied at the University of Chicago and the Juilliard School. The composer of operas, film scores, and symphonies, he performs regularly with the Philip Glass Ensemble and lives in New York.
