Saturday Matinee: Arpan by Anoushka Shankar

Progressive Epics. Folky Meditations. Extended Jazz Improvisations. Some songs are just long, y'know? So when better to sit down and take it all in than on a Saturday with your beverage of choice in hand?

Today's Matinee: "Arpan," composed by Ravi Shankar and conducted by Anoushka Shankar, comprises the better part of the first set of the Concert for George. The music is spiritual, occasionally meditative, but also dynamic and exciting. It also features some acoustic leads from Eric Clapton toward the end of the performance.
