Sitar virtuoso Ravi Shankar dies at 92

3 posts in this topic

I´ve always really dug the sitar and wanted to give a special shout out to Ravi who was not only an awesome musician but an outstanding man in many ways.

Labelled "the godfather of world music" by George Harrison, Shankar helped millions of classical, jazz and rock lovers discover the centuries-old traditions of Indian music.

He also pioneered the concept of the rock benefit with the 1971 Concert For Bangladesh. In what Shankar later described as "one of the most moving and intense musical experiences of the century," the pair organized two benefit concerts at Madison Square Garden that included Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan and Ringo Starr.
