"this is a great dvd . the overall performance is outstanding . if you like east indian music i highly recommend . the sound recording is extra good also . there are 2 long ragas performed . the first around 35 minutes . the 2nd around 50 minutes . the 50 minute raga is extra cool because , as ravi explains, the raga is set up to improvise a little more than usual and introduce "new" ragas within . the tabla player has an amazing solo towards the end of the 2nd raga . ravi of course is simply put, a true master . the sarod player has a nice complementary voice to shankar . he plays allot of counter rhythms to the tabla during solos which contrasts ravi well . 2 tamboura players accompany for added drones. also a great bonus interview and comments with explanations of indian music by ravi and other musicians and people ."

"An incredible tour-de-force. Such control of an awesome instrument.
To me his entire assemblage was nothing short of watching BLISS translated through their instruments. A joy to see such perfection!!!"
Less than impressive

"having seen the genius of ravi shankar unleashed upon a spell ridden crowd, (see Monterey pop, and others), the ensuing energy released causes an instant sense of unity, and a feeling of having witnessed/participated in something altogether extraordinary. I once saw him recieve a standing ovation after spending six or seven minutes tuning his instrument. he seems to have abandoned his focus on this outing. at one point he actually seems to be briefly running sitar blues riffs...eh???"
