Robindro Robinson Sitar Piano

Ravi Shankar

Perhaps I'm really playing the sitar when I play the piano, my Robinson heart belonging to Robindro listening to him play Tilak Kamod with Kumar Bose. He changed his name to Ravi (Shankar), of course.

I have ideas for several new compositions at once now, not to mention nine composition pencils, but prefer to focus on one peace (and tumult) at a time.

Maybe time to have an AI Michael Robinson composer, too, if it could be done. At the very least it might prove interesting, maybe even something to personally learn from.

The music of Ravi Shankar proved to be a developed taste, even more so than other great Indian artists, his full meaning going on beneath the surface, extraordinarily profound and subtle both expressively and technically.
