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.
