Happy 90th Birthday Ravi Shankar

Today is the birthday of Pandit Ravi Shankar and he is the most well known contemporary Indian musician. Shankar's effect is profound from teaching George Harrison of the Beatles to relentlessly carrying the Indian classical music torch to the west by writing concerti for sitar and orchestra during the 70's and 80's. Lets not forget he also performed at Woodstock in 1969.

For our tribute to Pandit Ravi Shankar we came across a question posed by BBC Broadcaster Bobby Friction (who also happened todo a recent documentary on him here)

Bobby Friction:

Wondering what the love child of Jimi Hendrix & Ravi Shankar would sound like....?


The Answer: Dave Sharma and his remix of Dheere Jalna from the film "Paheli"
