Ravi Shankar, Who Brought Indian Classical Music To The World, Dead At 92
"[He] was the Indian maestro who put the sitar on the musical map. George Harrison called him 'the godfather of world music' and it was Shankar's vision that brought the sounds of the raga into western consciousness, thus bridging the gap between eastern and western music for the first time." The Guardian (UK) 12/12/12
