Raga Dharmavati is a 1993 CD by violinist L. Subramaniam & tabla player Alla Rakha. The liner notes aren't sure if this is a live recording from 1983 or 1986 so let us call it "early to mid 1980's." This was released on Ravi Shankar's own label, Ravi Shankar Music Circle.
A release from Ravi Shankar's personal label, this album is part of a small series of recordings of the true masters of Indian classical music. (Other artists on the label include Shankar himself and Hariprasad Chaurasia.) Here, the acknowledged master of the carnatic violin tradition is presented in tandem with the master of the tabla. Together, they perform a grandiose version of "Raga Dharmavati." In a slight twist of the usual, the recording was actually made in a church in California. The acoustics are perfect nonetheless, with the tones of the violin fading away, true to the ways in which Subramaniam is attempting. The rhythmic accompaniment by Alla Rakha is also superb. There are a million albums of Indian classical music out there that are worth hearing, and this is another one sitting toward the top of the heap. Pick it up as a fan of the genre or of either of the players. For a newcomer to the genre, something slightly less imposing might be a better way to start (such as the Raga Guide), but this still isn't an album to be missed by Indian classical fans in any way.
