Ravi Shankar

Ravi Shankar is a very famous sitar player. One of  his popular song is “I am missing you”.  This song is also sung by The Beatles. Beside that, George Harrison was one of his students who learnt to play sitar from him. Not only that, Ravi Shankar was also well known close to The Beatles. He also ever collaborated with a famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin.

Ravi Shankar had a big contribution in  introducing Indian traditional music to the world especially by playing sitar. His two daughters followed his step becoming musicians. Anoushka and Norah Jones. Anoushka also plays sitar. But Norah Jones is a multi instrumentalist. At least she plays guitar,  piano and keyboard.

Ravi Shankar had a long life. He died in the age of 92 on 11th December 2012 in San Diego because of breathing problem.  So I, maybe  we may say “I am missing you” to him.
