The Indian music genius Ravi Shankar was for sure someone very special for the Woodstock festival. He made his first appearance to the western world at the Monterey International Pop Festival in 1967, followed by an invitation from Beatle George Harrison. In the wake of spiritualism and the search for new influences his music became very popular but Shankar wasn’t fond of the drug-consuming and partying crowd of young people.

Shankar started at about 10 pm on Friday evening and played for over 40 minutes throughout the rain.
