    I knew there was someone, other than myself, that knew who he is and what he does so well.

    London, new hearing aid project - exciting
    I thought everyone knew him. I went to a concert given by him and his daughter Anoushka -both amazing players. Norah is no slouch either - a rather talented family.

    I first heard of Ravi when my brother had his awesome record collection in house around 1970-73. And saw some "music festival" footage of him (woodstock or monterey pop) around that time also.
    It's nice to see it turned out to be a "family business".

    I've got a Ravi Shankar station on pandora. That's what I fall asleep to every night.
