Ravi Shankar NORAH JONES PAYS TRIBUTE TO HER FATHER RAVI SHANKAR

Legendary Indian sitar player, Ravi Shankar, died this week at the age of 92. His music inspired a wide range of people, from rock musicians to international leaders. Norah Jones paid tribute to her father in a statement via her record label which read: ‘My dad’s music touched millions of people. He will be greatly missed by me and music lovers everywhere.’ According to BBC, Shankar died in the early evening of December 11th in San Diego, California. His family said he had been admitted to hospital last week, but had failed to recover fully from surgery. Ravi Shankar taught The Beatles’ George Harrison how to play the sitar and was instrumental in bringing Indian music to the West. Described as the ‘godfather of world music’ by Harrison, Shankar will receive a posthumous Lifetime Achievement award at the Grammys next year. Be sure to let us know what you think!
