A New Development — An Electric Sitar
uncredited writer, KRLA Beat, 2 December 1967
ELEVEN YEARS ago a pixieish Indian named Ravi Shankar hit these shores. His sole objective in coming here was to make the western world aware of traditional Indian music, and his most important piece of luggage was a primitive Indian instrument which hasn't changed an iota in seven centuries — the Sitar. He was 15 years old when he began studying the Sitar, and now, at 47, he just barely feels he has mastered the instrument.
