Just curious.... How may of you guys are studying with a teacher? I guess they are pretty hard to find. At least here in Holland that is..... In England it would be easier to find a teacher, because of the colonial past. But the USA?
Hi Remco; You can't bring the mountain to Mohammad, so Mohammod must go to the mountain. In fact, I'm looking forward to starting lessons with Indrajit Banerjee next week. Yes, I have to travel several hundred miles for this, but sometimes that's the way it goes. Teachers in this country are also exceptionally hard to find.
What?? No videos?? Heh heh.......... Just ordered a video of a player named "Usman Khan", full concert. He's very good also, is the guru of a friend of mine. You can find it at: www.neelam.com Also, there's the movie "Raga" by Ravi Shankar which best price is at: www.mysticfire.com Also, like Russ mentioned....Concert for Bangladesh has some good footage but only about 1/2 hour of Ravi & friends....... Also there is a video of Vilayat Khan and others but currently out of print... I heard there is a DVD also of Vilayat but haven't seen it. I have a full concert video of Nikhil Banerjee also.......the picture quality isn't great but it's better than no Nikhil at all..........if you want to know about it: email@example.com
Hi again Lars. Saw part of this post under a different thread. Perhpas David is working on modifying the board again. Anyway, I have Raga, but I don't recall any complete sections in it. I've heard of Usman Khan somewhere. Let me know what you think of it.
