A master sitar player and champion of Indian music, Ravi Shankar has passed.
I remember his music from very long ago as a lad.
And I did not realize that he was the father of Norah Jones, another artist I enjoy very much.

Rest in peace, Ravi.


Famed Indian sitar player Ravi Shankar dies at 92.

Fortunately as he passes over he leaves us his daughter Anoushka an accomplished
player in her own right.

I was fortunate to have seen him perform about 4 times. I truly was a master on the Sitar. He will be missed.

O Lord! Lead us from untruth to truth
Lead us from darkness to light
Lead us from death to immortality

A friend of mine is a rookie music teacher in Kansas. He posted this on Facebook the other day:

In regards to Ravi Shankar's passing...
Student: "Sad, he didn't even make it to Christmas."
Me: "Well, seeing that he's not a Christian, I'm not sure how much that mattered to him."
Student: "Not a Christian? I'm not listening to this anymore." She then proceeded to plug her ears with her fingers.

Sigh... at least I can know that I'm the first person to expose these kids to this music.
