Indian Music Celebration To Be Held
16 October 2006
On Saturday November 11th 2006, The Music Circle with the support of the Material World Charitable Foundation presents a celebration: “Remembering George Harrison and his love of Indian music”.
Vishwa Mohan Bhatt and Lakshmi Shankar are performing at the George and Sakaye Aratani Japan America Theatre, supported by Shubankar Banerjee, Gopal Marathe and Jagan Ramamurthy.
George’s connection with the artists goes back to 1974, when Lakshmi was featured in the 1974 tour of great Indian musicians produced by George, “Ravi Shankar’s Family and Friends”. George presented Vishwa with a Grammy Award in 1994 at a Music Circle evening.
