Having studied with Ravi Shankar (in Los Angeles) and Ali Akbar Khan (in San Francisco), besides flamenco (in Spain in 1963), and presided over the soundtracks of Timothy Leary's LSD parties (in 1965),
Boston's guitarist and nomadic hippy Peter Walker recorded
Rainy Day Raga (Vanguard VSD 79238, released in april 1967) with
flutist Jeremy Steig and guitarist Bruce Langhorne. The album contains ten
instrumentals that attempt a pioneering East-West fusion. Live (on longer
improvisations) he sounded
like an acoustic version of Sandy Bull, never abandoning his acoustic guitar.
Second Poem to Karmela or Gypsies Are Important (Vanguard, 1969) added
sarod and sitar.
After a 40-year hiatus, Walker released A Raga for Peter Walker
and recorded a flamenco album, Eco de Mi Alma.
