Wideo Wednesday-Remembering Ravi Shankar

Ravi Collage by Therese

I was sad to hear that the great sitar musician Ravi Shankar passed away yesterday, he was 92.   Shankar was a master of the sitar and many may be familiar with him as an influence on the music of The Beatles (especially George Harrison) in the late 60’s.   He was also the father of musicians Anoushka Shankar and Norah Jones.  May he rest in peace.  His music always could take one to another mystical plane.  Enjoy this meditation:

  2. You’re very welcome, J. He had heart valve replacement surgery last Thursday, but sadly his body wasn’t up to the stress. Still, he had a great long life at 92.

  3. He did, and his musical and social influence, especially through his friendship with George, is incalculable
