The Music Room Episode 8 – Indian Music on Western Instruments

In anticipation of the world premiere of Ravi Shankar’s only opera Sukanya, the Bagri Foundation presents the eighth episode of The Music Room, a short online film series, exploring dialogues between classical Indian and Western music with the opera’s conductor David Murphy.

 

The eighth episode examines fusion, how the traditions of Indian Classical Music can be merged with the concepts and instruments of its Western counterpart. In order to demonstrates this, the video offers a fascinating insight into Ravi Shankar’s composition process and outlines how the third movement of Ravi Shankar’s Symphony was constructed.
