Uploaded on Jan 1, 2011 Pt. Ravi Shankar meets Paco de Lucia and the two great maestros discuss about the relations between Indian Classical music and Flamenco.Though a short and widespread discussion that Flamenco scales have similarities with raga Bhairavi (Panditji points out Sindhi Bhairavi which is misunderstood and written "Paravi") it gets importance when the two great artists talk about some common roots.[This is a fact that the Phrygian Dominant scale or the Gypsy scale has resemblance with different forms of Bhairavi and also with other Indian folk tunes.The gypsies are possibly responsible about this cultural travel.]I found that Pt. Ravi Shankar and Paco de Lucia have some things common in their life too.1) Both of them have popularized their art almost alone in the West especially in U.S.A. {No offence to other artists but I mean what names come to a foreign mind while hearing about Indian Classical music or Flamenco!!!} 2) Both of them started their career playing with their elder brothers' association. Ravi Shankar started in his elder brother Uday Shankar's group and Paco de Lucia started with his brothers accompanying in José Greco's group.3) Both the groups (of Uday Shankar and José Greco) were presented by Sol Hurok as the impresario.May you find some more ................
