    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.

    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.
