  1. Song of the Stallion, an Album by Robbie Basho. Released in on Takoma (catalog no. C; Vinyl LP). Genres: American Primitivism, Avant-Folk/5().
  2. Robbie Basho's finger-picked guitar technique was influenced heavily by sarod playing, and his studies with the Indian virtuoso Ali Akbar Khan. Basho used unusual open tunings, including a number of variants on "open-C" (CGCGCE), and played a string guitar to recreate the drone that is characteristic of Indian classical music.
  3. Mar 20,  · Robbie Basho released 6 albums prior to 'Song of the Stallion'. With each album, he explored ways to mix traditionally Eastern and Western music into something new. 'Song of the Stallion' is in my mind the culmination of that effort, the most accomplished of his albums form this period, and simply one of the best albums of his career.5/5(1).

  5. Song of the Stallion is composed around a merging of Hindi, Middle Eastern, Western classical, and American styles of music. The album includes a fair amount of recited mystical/romantic poetry concerning, among other things, marrying an Indian maiden, in addition to Basho's deep operatic wailing (his voice is not what he's known for). If that sounds a bit out there to you, then be assured 6/
  6. Mar 14,  · "I was asked by the record company to sum up "my" philosophy of life and music. "My" philosophy is quite simple: soul first, technique later, or "Better to drink wine from the hands than water from a pretty cup"; of course the ultimate is wine from a pretty cup. Amen." Robbie Basho/5(21).
