Some of you may remember the Indian musician who played the sitar back in the late 60's/ early 70's with George Harrison and had his own albums ( these were very large CD like plastic discs we used to play on a special machine to hear the music recorded on them Twisted Evil ) as well. He was 92. He was a gentle person and Norma Jones is his daughter. Find some of his music and give him a listen in his memory.

Had a bunch of his albums back in the late 60's. Most outstanding one was the work he did with Yehudi Menuhin.

Very gifted musician. RIP Ravi.

Crying or Very sad



Cheers,

RR

The guy was a giant. I remember listening him in an ethnomusicology course back in the day. We learned about the raga system listening to him and his tabla player. Incredible stuff.

Raga scales are one I use a lot in futzing around with synthesizers. Really fun music theory from that dude. The sitar never did much for me, but the guy was one in a billion.

Cool

Not hard to see where Nora got some of her talent.
I remember getting stoned back in the 70's listening to Ravi play.
He was the best I've heard.

Extremely sad news. We had tickets to see him perform at UC Davis a few months back, but he had to cancel the performance due to illness.

Definitely a true musical giant.

I like sitars, and Shankar.
But I don't know that I could tell one sitarist from another.
Except for this guy...

I was sad to hear this. I saw him live twice several years ago and his daughter (talented and beautiful!) a couple of times as well. For my senior recital, I played the theme from Pather Panchali (a beautiful sitar solo theme that was played throughout that movie) on the french horn! Didn't quite sound the same as Ravi would have played it. Rolling Eyes

RIP Ravi. I had a stretch in college where all I listened to was Ravi Shankar. Just incredible. He leaves behind a legacy.

Derek Trucks was influenced by him. Give this a listen. If you please.
