There is a Ravi Shankar CD called "Ragas Varanasi" published in 1998 by Exworks Records (EWD2112) which I have had for a while. I assumed that the ragas played on it were invented by Ravi Shankar and called Varanasi, but now I'm not at all sure.

The CD itself has no useful information at all. The two raga tracks are helpfully called Raga One and Raga Two. The raga (alap section) on the first track sounds familiar, but I can't place it for sure, or indeed I'm not sure if the first two tracks are the same raga. Does anyone know the identity of the tracks on this CD?

Dear Axel

You are indeed quite correct ! Thanks a lot. So now I know why it sounds familiar. But I have to say this information is very cunningly disguised. The Oriental Records CD is recorded by engineer Ben Rizzi at Master Sound Studio NYC, while the Ragas Varanasi CD is supposedly recorded by a Logan Strand at Stone River Studios NY.
