L. Shankar (L. stands for Lakshminarayana) is not related to Ravi Shankar. L. Shankar plays a double violin and also has training in chanting. But I like Ravi Shankar too. I'll check Anoushka. :smile:

I found this the other day. A couple of Iranian musicians got permission to rework Pink Floyd's Brick in the Wall as a protest song against the Ayatollah. I liked and thought I should share it here.

Oh yes, I wanted to share this song by another Thai band I really love, Bodyslam. This is really just a love song, but they made it an epic love song and connected it to the world, not sure how to explain that, but the video does a good job. I was able to find a version that had english lyrics, please enjoy!

Here's one of fusion between western and indian music. Shakti with John McLaughlin:

Thanks, that was awesome. It reminds me of some of the work George Harrison did with Indian music, only I think this is better.

He was one of The Beatles, but when they all broke up and did solo work he did alot of music that was India fused. I know he worked with Ravi Shankar, a sitar player. Ravi is also the father of Norah Jones.

Speaking of George Harrison, here's two versions of "Tomorrow Never Knows"... first, The Beatles...



Second, Dave Matthews with Herbie Hancock....

The Matthews?Hancock version is good, but I like the Beatles better. That might be because I was raised on classic rock.
