Raga Records consultant Ira Landgarten has made a lifelong project
of documenting Sangeet.
He recorded Manilal Nag in Nepal for Ravi Shankar Music Circle
in 1976; and was instrumental in bringing Nikhil Banerjee to Amsterdam
for the De Kosmos concert (Raga-212).
He has photographed and interviewed many of the leading North
Indian artists of our era, both independently and as Staff Photographer
fro the World Music Institute, NY. Some of these have appeared
in Raga Records CD booklets and can be found on this website.
He co-founded Simla House, Inc. with Ray Spiegel near Woodstock
New York, where they imported fine Indian musical instruments,
and he has co-produced several CDs on that label.
