Ravi Shankar

Ravi Shankar was a master of the sitar, a traditional Indian instrument. I recently “discovered” his music, or better said the Amazon Music algorithm discovered Shankar for me.

Ever since I have been listening to his music which is what I can describe as a type of Indian classical jazz. He generally performs in a group of three with a tanpura player and a hand drums player. While laying in bed, listening to his tunes in concert with the other two player I couldn’t help but think of the Trinity and the complete interplay of love, individuality, unity, creativity and ease which is displayed in Shankar’s work.

I believe Shankar can serve as a musical approximation of an explanation of the Trinity. Try it sometime.
