Who is Pandit Ravi Shankar?

Pandit Ravi Shankar,  who would have turned 96 today, was the virtuoso sitar maestro who introduced Indian classical music to the world. He inspired the Sixties 'psychedelic' sound through his collaboration with the Beatles.

In an archive interview the musician, Ravi Shankar, recalls his time teaching the Beatles guitarist how to play the sitar.

Ravi  lives on through his musical daughters Anoushka, and American folk soul singer,  Nora Jones.
