Northern Spy Records is excited and honored to announce the release of 'In Hollywood, 1971,' a new record by Ravi Shankar presented across 2 LPs, for Record Store Day 2016. The four Ragas on this record are culled from a private, never-before-released house concert; beautifully recorded, they sound phenomenal after tape transfer, audio restoration, and re-mastering. As Ravi’s wife, Sukanya Shankar, attests in her amazing liner notes, this concert most certainly sowed the seed for the overwhelmingly successful Concert for Bangladesh with George Harrison. Profits from this release benefit The Ravi Shankar Foundation, which serves to educate the world about Indian classical music and to preserve the archive of Ravi Shankar.
