Ravi Shankar - an icon to just about everyone who, like me, is going towards 60 - died. May he rest in peace.

Bookmark and Share RIP Ravi. The ’raga’ format made quite the impression on me when I was young, in addition to Mr. Shankar’s work there was a wonderful guitarist named Peter Walker who had an album called ’Rainy Day Raga’ that was on continuous loop for a year or so.

Bookmark and Share Sad to see another, Brubeck, music giant pass. Was not a huge listener of his music, however, would like to have some of his stuff. Would anyone like to offer their opinion on his absolute must have album. Have looked online and seen a Greatest Hits and Essential CD but am unsure as to what to get. Thanks for the help.

Bookmark and Share An island of peace and contemplation in a world of frantic anxiety...his music showed generations of musicians and listeners another way. Freedom through discipline,study and deep understanding. Norah and Anoushka can hopefully carry the torch.

Bookmark and Share Daughter Anoushka continues the Shankar musical journey in a gorgeous fashion! I really like her playing, if you haven’t, I recommend checking out her album "Traveller", which examines the commonalities between indian and spanish music.

Bookmark and Share Ravi was a giant, one of the greatest musicians to have ever walked the earth and hugely influential.

Bookmark and Share Mr Shankar probably influenced popular music as much as anyone since the 60’s and wasn’t even a popular music musician, if that makes sense. Point is, he had a tremendous impact on the music that evolved from that time to present. Teacher,musician,guru. An amazing legacy.
