Ravi Shankar, R. I. P.

Indian sitar virtuoso Ravi Shankar dies: With an instrument perplexing to most Westerners, Ravi Shankar helped connect the world through music. The sitar virtuoso hobnobbed with the Beatles, became a hippie musical icon and spearheaded the first rock benefit concert as he introduced traditional Indian ragas to Western audiences over nearly a century.

I was never a fan. And sitar music just gives me a headache. Love Ravi's daughter, Norah Jones!
