Ravi Shankar: Sitar virtuoso and father of the rock benefit concert
Ravi Shankar: George Harrison called him "the godfather of world music." Ravi Shankar helped millions of classical, jazz and rock lovers discover the centuries-old traditions of Indian music.

Quote:
Shankar died Tuesday at age 92. A statement on his website said he died in San Diego, near his Southern California home with his wife and a daughter by his side.

@tsarstepan,
Sometimes his music just went on and on like Irish folk songs. I lovedit when these guys (Like Shankar and Bhatt) would collaborate with some of our writers like the Beatles and Ry Cooder to have the SItar and the drums really pepper up a tune

I loved
"A meeting at the River" with Cooder and Bhatt, I believe that many of the pieces were composed with input from Shankar

His daughter, Nora Jones, is a really good jazz singer and pianist.

It was a great ride Dr Shankar

@tsarstepan,
He was to the sitar what Jimmy Hendrix or Les Paul was to the electric guitar. The man put the Indian culture on the map probably more than any other artist, and also aligned it with the breakthrough Western trends of the 60's, giving it mass worldwide appeal.
RIP Ravi Shankar.

Ravi Shankar was just one of those masters from Indian ..... and am always going to think of him as the greatest sitarist to ever live. RIP.
