Shankar Tucker & Clarinet : Western Instrument... Indian Sound

Shankar Tucker is a musician who has become an object of curiosity because of his immense talent as well as nationality. Shankar is master of Clarinet which is originally a German instrument. The mastery of Shankar lies in the fact that he plays clarinet by fusing it with Indian classical music,a feat not performed earlier by any foreign artist earlier.

Recently Shankar launched his album on You Tube named as The Shruti Box. It has eleven tracks . Six of these tracks are instrumental & rest  five are mixture of bhajans, film songs & classical fusion. Shanker's magic works in each of these tracks. Out of these 6  instrumental tracks, my personal favourite  are Night Monsoon, Lemon Grass and Sonu.
