    Most here probably never heard of him, but for those that have, he died today at the ripe old age of 92. Life well lived and provided to us that heard his music, some truly artistic moments.

    Rockstar Shankar. The man was a legend (as well as Norah Jones's father)

    Shankar sitar still lives on :-)

    One of Ravi Shankar's daughter doing a tribute concert to George Harrison nearly a decade ago.
    Anoushka Shankar

    Definitely a video to save if you can't watch it now (or listen in the background)... she is playing HARD!

    There's even a tabla solo :D
    edit: looks like there's a lil tabla solo in tweek's video too!

    Wow, Haze, thanks for that for vid. She is just rippppin' that sitar. Her father definitely passed on the genes.

    And yeah, that tabla solo was insane....
