goodbye ravi shankar

December 11, 2012

Sitar legend Ravi Shankar has passed away at the age of 92. There are already, and will be plenty more fitting eulogies for such a gifted giant of world music. All I can say is discovering Shankar and his music was an important landmark on my own musical awakening and left a deep and lasting impression on me. His incredible talent was staggering, and his groundbreaking crossover popularity pushed the boundaries of western popular music. I thank him for the beauty he brought into in my life.
