Ravi Shankar and Alla Rakha, no. 1
Monterey Pop Festival,
Monterey, California, June 1967
By the time Ravi Shankar brought his sitar wizardry to the Monterey Pop Festival, his music had already influenced the recordings of the Beatles and other English and American pop groups. Ravi's Sunday afternoon performance elicited from the overflow crowd at the Monterey County Fairgrounds arena a standing ovation that continued long after Ravi and his two accompanists had taken many bows and finally retired from the stage.
