“It’s a new collaboration between Los Angeles based sitar player, Paul Livingstone and one of the great figures of Son Jarocho from Veracruz, Mexico, Ramon Guitierrez.
There is an interaction between the sitar and the guitar in “Bhairavi/Las Poblanas” where these two very different instruments from two very different cultures find a common ground.
For more than a decade, Livingstone has been traveling to Mexico to perform and teach Indian music to Mexican musicians.But he’s also been learning about Mexico’s traditional music and in some cases, collaborating with a few musicians.
“RagaSON,” the title track on the record, is the fruit of years of work looking for a common path between Indian music and Mexican traditional music, Raggas and Son Jarocho from Veracruz.” (via PRI.org)
