An "Unknown" Indian Film Music master
Posted By: Steven A. Kennedy 3/9/2009 - 9:00 PM
Back in the 1960s, Italian director Quilci Folco created one of the early travelogues of India in a documentary of the same name. The score, by Francesco de Masi, is a relatively innocent affair as global music goes with orchestrations that hint at the musical styles of India. Famed Italian whister, Alessandro Alessandroni, even plays a sitar in this score. The Beatles later would introduce a much wider audience to the sounds of India at a time when the field of ethnomusicology and awareness of global musics outside Western culture was still quite rare. If you are a child of the 1970s, you will surely recall the rise in America of the great sitarist Ravi Shankar and the many crossover albums that brought the sound of ragas to the door of Western classical music.
