Although this is not a personal recollection of Ravi, it is for me a tribute to a gift that he has given the world.

I have loved Ravi’s music since being first introduced to him by George Harrison from the Beatles. I fell in love with the music of the sitar which then lead me to the music of the kora of Africa.

I believe part of Ravi Shankar’s greatest legacy is and will always be his beautiful daughters, Anoushka Shankar and Norah Jones. Although they are sisters born from different mothers, they both have such passion for music and there is no denying that their father’s blood flows through the hearts and bodies.

So now as Ravi has left the physical world behind, he is merged with that creative life force energy from where the music flows.

Here is a favorite song…Easy.
