Ravi Shankar was a Hindustani classical musician and composer who inspired the inclusion of sitar sounds in Western music, most notably through his association with George Harrison of the Beatles. He collaborated with many musicians throughout his long career, and performed all over the world up until his passing at age 92. His daughter Anoushka Shankar, a respected musician and composer, continues the family tradition today.
Music by Anoushka Shankar

What is a Sitar?
George Harrison Sitar Lesson
Sitar Lesson with Ravi Shankar
The Beatle received in-depth tutelage from Ravi Shankar during a seven-week visit to India. The experience had a lasting impact. George Harrison studied and promoted Indian music for the remainder of his career.
Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin)
I went to India after I came back from a tour with the Yardbirds in the late sixties just so I could hear the music firsthand. Let’s put it this way: I had a sitar before George Harrison got his. I wouldn’t say I played it as well as he did, though.
