Press from the record label:
Sitar virtuoso Kartik Seshadri is recognized worldwide as one of India’s outstanding musicians and the foremost disciple of Pandit Ravi Shankar. Critics hailed Seshadri as a child prodigy and prominent musician when he began performing full-length solo recitals at the age of six. Seshadri had already embarked on an illustrious performing career when in 1965 he met the world-renowned maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar, who was already a profound musical influence in his life. Seshadri became a disciple of Ravi Shankarin in 1974 and accompanied him in major concert halls throughout the world, from India, Europe and the Middle East, to Japan, Mexico and the United States, including New York’s Carnegie Hall. Seshadri performs extensively as a soloist in major venues throughout India and abroad. His concerts in India frequently include prestigious festivals such as the Sangeeth Nataka Academy, Sangeeth Research Academy (ITC Music Festival), Gunidas Sangeeth Sammelan, Madras Music Academy, Indian Fine Arts Society, and Saptak, establishing him as a musician of national importance. In the United States and Canada, his recent solo engagements have included Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, World Music Institute, Asia Society, Vancouver Jazz Festival and Ravi Shankar’s 75th Birthday Celebration. Seshadri’s performances are noted for their expressiveness, rich tonal sensibility and extraordinary rhythmic intricacy. Mr. Seshadri tours with Phillip Glass in the "Orion" Concert Series.
Includes liner notes by Ravi Shankar.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
