L. shankar- "who's to know" lp- The album cover shown here has a picture of his custom-made, double neck violin. L. Shankar is a master musician- he plays in the Carnatic style - an ancient style of music from Southern India. But he has brought this ancient tradition into the present, giving it his own fiery interpretation (much like Ustad Nusrat Ali Khan did for qawaali music.) He has played with many popular musicians such as Peter Gabriel and FRANK ZAPPA. This lp is one of his finest- fluid and completely beautiful beyond anything i've ever heard.
