Reel to Reel: Sangeet Ratna

Part Of Our I Love LA Series

Celebrated for both his unique artistic vision and deep understanding and love of music, Alan Kozlowski is an award winning visual artist, filmmaker and GRAMMY-nominated music producer. Kozlowski’s diverse interests and talents integrate extraordinary life experience and a penchant for technology, creating a rich tapestry of artistic adventure and creative expression. However, much of his artistic focus centers around mentor, teacher and dear friend, Ravi Shankar. First exposed to his music at a concert in San Francisco in 1965, Alan was blessed to meet Ravi under auspicious circumstances in 1978, which began 35 years of study and collaboration. Alan went on to perform with Ravi in venues around the world, including Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, and London’s Royal Opera House. Following Shankar’s passing in December 2012, Kozlowski mined the archives to produce Sangeet Ratna (Jewel Of Music), a 35-minute tribute to his life and work, presented in March 2013, at Ravi’s memorial event at Nehru Park in New Delhi. As part of our Indian American Music Celebration, please join us for a special screening and panel discussion of Sangeet Ratna. Joining Kozlowski on stage for the discussion will be Ravi’s wife, Sukanya Shankar, and moderator Scott Goldman.
