I thought that one of the best things i could do with a blog is to take you the reader through the process that I will use to learn about this very complex and generally beautiful instrument. Along the way, I will post links about upcoming cultural events in the Greater Richmond Area relavent to World music, information about new instruments we've gotten in and beautiful music I have found floating about on the interwebs.
To start I am including this link. It is an introduction to sitar and Indian music by the master, Ravi Shankar.
I hope you enjoy!
