Very sad. I was lucky enough to see him, and his daughter, in 2010 at the Royal Festival Hall in London for the premier if his Symphony.

Huge influence on many musicians from many different parts of the world.

If you are talking about Anoushka, she sure is beautiful.

Thanks to George Harrison for making him popular in the west.

It is very sad to have lost the greatest sitar player ever. He could have made the LEV 96 sound truly amazing had he not died. But, 92 years is a very long time to live, and he lived his life to the fullest. :(

and dig out his symphonic works with Philip Glass too

Anoushka plays very beautifully as well!
Will love to hear her with the LEV 96 :D

He was the most popular sitar player in the western world, but far from the best. I have seen quite a few that were better. He did learn from one of the greatest musicians that has ever existed, Baba Allaudin Khan, Ali Akbar Khan's father and guru. RIP though to a great musician.

Shoot, Ravi even looks old in the George Harrison Concert For Bangladesh (from the '70s.) He lived a very long life, and was one heck of a Sitar player. The best I've heard by far!

My thoughts exactly. Most popular, far from the best, done the most to promote awareness of Indian Classical music.

Say hey to George for us bro.
