Oh dear. The world has lost a very peaceful man. Ravi Shankar has passed away at the age of 92. Much of the world was given the gift of Ravi’s presence back in the 1960’s when The Beatles studied under him and brought traditional Indian ragas to Western audiences. George Harrison, specifically, bonded with the virtuoso sitarist. Many of you may also know Ravi as the father of Grammy Award winning recording artist Nora Jones.
The website ravishankar.org announced the passing today.
