Film India – The Cinema Of Ravi Shankar - Ravi Shankar

Film India – The Cinema Of Ravi Shankar
Released 19/10/ 09 Film India comprises five film soundtracks from Ravi Shankar - four from the films of India’s internationally celebrated director Satyajit Ray, including the masterful Pather Panchali / The Apu Trilogy - Ustad Vilayat Khan’s music for Ray’s imperious Jalsaghar (The Music Room), and the soundtrack from Jean Renoir’s first Technicolor feature, The River, the first colour film made in India and regarded by Martin Scorsese as one of the most beautiful ever made.

The soundtrack of each film in the Apu Trilogy was scored by Ravi Shankar. The music for Pather Panchali, described as at once plaintive and exhilarating, is featured in the The Guardian’s list of 50 greatest film soundtracks. In 1955, Satyajit Ray made his debut as director with the masterpiece of world cinema that is Pather Panchali.

Played with restraint by a non-professional cast and influenced by such Italian neorealist features as Bicycle Thieves, it’s a story of a young Bengali boy's introduction to the ways of the world and is remarkable for its simplicity and humanity. The first in the acclaimed Apu trilogy (Aparajito and The World of Apu make up the saga), it astounded everyone when it won the Special Jury Prize at Cannes, particularly as it was filmed on weekends and holidays over a four-year period, with Ray having to pawn his wife's jewellery to complete the shoot.
