    I was scouting Youtube and found this , its increadable
    and highly unlikely pairing ,well worth listening to
    I always loved new approaches to music , I hope you enjoy it

    That whole recording is worth your time. I am humbled each time I listen.

    I had always thought that a resonator guitar ( played correctly of course) and a sitar (tuned to open keys ) sounded similar, but hear them played so well is mind boggling , to say the least.

    glad you enjoyed it

    Im going to have to find this recording for my collection :D:D:D:D

    I do have a recording of a 12 string guitar and a digeridoo and it is really well done as well, just very different

    I cite Ry as a top 5 musical inspiration (he is why I took up the mandolin), and I would rate "A Meeting by The River" and "Talking Timbuktu" among my absolute favorite albums he's ever done. YMMV.

    Excellent mesh of east and west. Not too surprised that these two would try such a collaboration. Genius.

    Very inspiring.

    Thanks for posting.

    beyond the fact that different cultures separate these two genres , the similarities are more profound , the voicings are slightly different but not by much, who would have thought delta blues and indian Ragas would match as well as it does , very cool

    Both are Grammy winners along with 'Buena Vista Social Club.'

    Brother Ry is my hero.

    Good Dog

    Ry Cooder in his many forms has been in rotation for me since I can remember. However, “Talking Timbuktu” is my go-to when I need to relax. I’m not sure why that album in particular, but when my mind is all worked up about nothing, that one untangles it all and makes things nice.
