    Description

    Raga Mala: The Autobiography of Ravi Shankar Signed Review Copy (Genesis, 1998). Ravi Shankar is the world's foremost sitar-virtuoso and composer, the man christened by George Harrison as the "Godfather of World Music," who spearheaded the international spread of Indian culture. He has a remarkable story to tell, and he brings to the task the same contrasting qualities that make him as uncommon a man as a musician: that mixture of charm and candour, of dignity and humility, of deep spirituality and wide-eyed, impish fun. Signed by Ravi Shankar, Raga Mala features a remarkable collection of photographs and documents drawn almost entirely from the personal archives of Ravi Shankar and George Harrison. A large number of these have never been published before. Classically elegant in design and presented to the very highest of standards, it is a beautiful record of an extraordinary life. Bound in Bangalore raw silk, specially created for this book, with gilt hand-tooling and gilded page edging. The box is a silk screened presentation box, decoratively blocked in gold leaf. Along with the book, two CDs showcasing 80 minutes of exclusive and rare material, and a packet of Special Durbar Agarbathi incense sticks (a personal favourite of Ravi and the book's guest editor, George Harrison) are also included.
