Norah Jones' Father, Sitarist Ravi Shankar, Dead at 92
Ravi was admitted to Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego, California last week after having difficulty breathing and died on Tuesday (December 11) at approximately 4:30pm PT.
The sitarist was considered to be the driving force of introducing Indian music to the Western World and he forged a relationship with Beatles guitarist George Harrison, which helped him reach global fame.
Ravi continued to give virtuoso performances into his 90s, including one last year at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
We send our condolences out to Ravi‘s family, friends, and loved ones during this difficult time.
