Ravi Shankar – Song from the hills.

Heavily rhythm-driven piece with lovely flute sounds. I don’t know anything about Asian scales but the one in use sounds familiar.

Bit of a shame that the mix is poor in every version that I can find. The Sitar is panned hard right and this detracts from the music a bit.

This is accessible to my Western ears and I can see where people like The Beatles got their inspiration from.

Very nice.

Listen to it here.
