RIP Ravi Shankar

This evening, the world has lost an amazing and inspirational musician; Ravi Shankar. He worked with The Beatles and specifically George Harrison.

He'll be missed deeply.

Quote:
NEW DELHI (AP) Ravi Shankar, the sitar virtuoso who became a hippie musical icon of the 1960s after hobnobbing with the Beatles and who introduced traditional Indian ragas to Western audiences over a 10-decade career, died Tuesday. He was 92.

A great sitar player. His recordings with Ali Akbar Khan and his score for Pather Panchali are legendary.

Yes, yes, and yes!

I'm so glad to have seen him in concert a few times before he passed...

He left us two gifts: his music and his daughter, Norah Jones.

Grew up listening to Ravi. He and the Beatles got me playing the Sitar.

RIP Ravi.
