Monday Music: Raga Pancham Se Gara (Ravi Shankar)

Two remarkable musicians: a young Ravi Shankar on sitar accompanied by Allah Rakha on the tabla. In this live recording (from 1968), both musicians bear honorific titles: "Pandit" Ravi Shankar -- Pandit is a Hindu term for scholar in philosophy or music; and "Ustad" Allah Rakha -- ustad is a term for teacher. Both men were quite accomplished musicians.
