Format: CD
Label: Sri Moonshine

"The Raga Cycle at the Palace Theatre in Paris, 1972 showcased PANDIT PRAN NATH at the peak of his powers. The Raga Cycle took place over three consecutive days. Friday, May 28th night ragas, Saturday May 29th, late afternoon ragas and Sunday, May 30th morning and mid-day ragas. These three concerts stand as a truly awe-inspiring monument, an example of perfection of the high Art of Hindustani music by one of the greatest masters of the Kirana Gharana. Kirana, a small village north of New Delhi, produced many of the giants of Indian classical vocal music. Among them, Ustad Abdul Waheed Khansahib, Pran Nath-jis guru, and the immensely popular Ustad Abdul Kareem Khan. Accompanying Pran Nath in these Palace Theatre Concerts are his American disciples LA MONTE YOUNG and MARIAN ZAZEELA, tambouras, and TERRY RILEY, tabla." - Sri Moonshine.

Artist: RILEY, TERRY & GYAN
Title: Terry Riley & Gyan Riley - Live
Format: CD
Label: Sri Moonshine
Country: USA
Price: $17.00
"Terry Riley, piano and vocals; Gyan Riley, classical and electric guitars, harmony vocals on "Emerald Runner." "Nothing I have done in this life has given me more satisfaction than improvising on these songs with Gyan. Nothing I have done can match the intuitive synchronicity we have shared many times on the stage. Gyan supplies a brilliant counterpoint to the strands and moods of these pieces always surprising me with a virtuosity that serves and energizes his musical invention. I could not have dreamed up a better marriage of mind and spirit than this collaboration." -Terry Riley "Being able to perform with my dad has been without question the most enriching, challenging, inspirational musical experience Ive had. His music is bountiful! I love the rich harmonies, the colorful lyrics, the subtle pitch inflections (stemming from his long-time devotion to the North Indian kirana tradition), and the lengthy and often complex partially improvised structures. But I think the most unique musical quality about my dad is his ability to get deeper and deeper into the mood of a piece, leaving all other concerns behind, transcending the listener. Weve been talking about making a record together for years, but each time we plan to record we just end up mostly cooking and hanging out, and playing of course (we just forget to press record!). So we decided on this live release, featuring some of our favorite moments from 3 different concerts given over the last 7 years." -Gyan Riley
