The Beatles!

Hello awesome students! 

Since our world music Wednesday feature (Ravi Shankar) collaborated with this group, it is a GREAT time to discuss the Beatles!

The Beatles formed in 1960 in Liverpool, England. The most well-known lineup includes Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. 

By 1964, The Beatles were an international phenomenon and led what was known at the time as "The British Invasion". Over their career, the Beatles released 13 albums, including hits such as Help!, A Hard Day's Night, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band, Yellow Submarine, Abbey Road, and Let It Be. 

The Beatle's influence over the decades is woven into music history and can be heard in musicians throughout the world. Additionally, George Harrison collaborated with Ravi Shankar and helped spread Indian music around the world. 

 Here is a recording of one of their many popular songs, "Here Comes the Sun" from the Abbey Road album!
