print   ·   T  T  

Iconic sitarist, a musical bridge, a staunch traditionalist, a visionary, a storehouse of knowledge, an experimentalist…Pandit Ravi Shankar was all this and more. A complete musician, he broke all barriers and mental blocks to realise his creative potential. He won over his countrymen, contemporaries and citizens of the world by deconstructing classical music without making it lose its essence. Well-known classical musicians pay tribute to India’s inimitable ambassador of music.
