Passages is a collaborative chamber music studio album
co-composed by Ravi Shankar and Philip Glass, released in
1990. The album is a hybrid of Hindustani Classical music and
Glass' distinct American minimal contemporary Classical style.
A collaboration between an avant-garde modern Classical
composer and a traditional Indian/Hindi composer/performer
seems pretty unlikely. However, Passages works splendidly.
Shankar's smooth style fits nicely with Glass' dissonant
The album reached a peak position of number three on
Billboard's Top World Music Albums chart. Recommended to
fans of other minimalist composers such as John Cage, Steve
Reich and Terry Riley.
