In recognition of Ravi Shankar’s 91’s birthday, the Reel Music series is proud to debut the re-release of the long out of print documentary film about the legendary sitarist.

Originally released in 1971, Raga: A Journey into the Soul of India documents the life of sitar master Ravi Shankar in the late 1960s and early 1970s, following him on his return to India to revisit his guru, Bengali multi-instrumentalist and composer Baba Ustad Allauddin Khan. It further explores Shankar’s life as a musician and teacher, initiating those in the West to the exceptional world that is Indian classical music and culture.
