Indian classical sitarist and legend Ravi Shankar has passed away at 92 years old.
Shankar has been performing since the 1930s and began receiving international attention by the '50s. Since then he's been an influence on Western music, having famously taught George Harrison (and later performed at Harrison's Concert for Bangladesh), performed at Monterey Pop Festival and Woodstock, recorded a collaboration with Philip Glass, and more. Norah Jones is his daughter.
Rest in peace, Ravi. Your contributions to music of all cultures will always be remembered. Some videos below...
