Ravi Shankar Short Bio
Ravi Shankar (in Bengali: রবি শংকর)? (Benares, British Raj, April 7, 1920 – San Diego, United States, December 11, 2012) was an Indian musician known worldwide as a virtuoso of the sitar. Pandit Ravi Shankar was a Brahmana by birth, that is, he belonged to the Indian priestly caste of artists and musicians.
Disciple of Allauddin Khan (founder of the Maihar Gharana of classical Indian music), Pandit Ravi Shankar is probably the most recognized Indian instrumentalist, famous both for his performances around the world and for his pioneering role in importing into the Western world of traditional classical Indian music, which was also favored by its association with the violinist Yehudi Menuhin and with the English musician George Harrison of the Beatles group, as well as by his personal charisma. His musical career has lasted more than six decades and Shankar currently holds the Guinness Record for the longest international career.
Ravi Shankar was the father of the American singer Norah Jones and of the sitarista and conductor Anoushka Shankar.
