The Talk

Ravi Freeman is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, composer and one of the longest established Western players of the kora (West African harp), Ravi’s music is the result of a lifetime exploring the edge, through world music, devotional singing, indigenous cultures, throat singing and a journey that has taken him from India to the Amazon.

As well as over 20 CDs, international performances and workshops plus the invention of the electric/stereo kora, Ravi has also worked with artists such as Nigel Kennedy, Jon Lord, Phil Manzanera, Baaba Maal, Dr John, Tarun Bhattacharya, Ronu Majumdar and Marlui Miranda.

“Ravi is a rare talent – a musical shaman who knows no fear. He has been an inspiration to us over the years as he continues to cross borders and boundaries in his quest for musical expression and freedom” – Deva Primel

“I have seen many musicians and performers in the last 20 years or more. Ravi Ji is not a performer or musician, he is greater than that. It is evident that he is deeply connected to something far greater than himself. Through this connection, he creates a sacred space where he, and those that participate with him, access deep meditative states, through heartfelt song, accompanied by Ravi’s delightful playing of musical instruments.” – Bhakti Rasa (film maker)
