was just up in SPB and saw signs all over for a Ravi Shankar gig in SPB on the 12th of july. does anyone know if he is coming to Moscow as well?

saw him in CT in 97, and it was brilliant. unbelievably beautiful music...his daughter was touring with him at the time and it was just before she released a single album...one of the best musical events i've ever been to...

if anyone knows anything about him playing here, please do post it here...!

His official site (http://www.ravishankar.org/) doesn't have anything beyond the SPB date on July 13, but there are two days between that and his performance in Riga, so it is theoretically possible...

Big fan of Ravi Shankar. That'd be great if he performed in Moscow :)


Which daughter did you see? Anoushka Shankar or Norah Jones?

I've seen the posters around Moscow, but haven't been close enough to read them...if he's only playin in SPB, there's no way I can make it, gosh darnit...:(

saw him with anoushka, just before her album came out. it was i think independence day for india the day he played. he played some song that was significant for indians, and everyone in the audience got up and sang with him...it was amazing. would indeed be great if he performed here....sigh...thanks for the info, ya'll...

Better yet -- get $50-100k together and I'm sure they'll come play anywhere you want :)
