Re: Farewell Ravi Shankar

Goodbye to a great man.

I saw a performance in Vancouver BC on his last world tour. He told us it would be his last but seeing him sitting on stage, playing with youth and vigour and hearing his voice clear and carrying I didn't believe him.

I had a moving experience that night. He was a master musician and a powerful presence. One of his daughters, Anoushka, performed with him that night and it is safe to say, he left qualified students to carry on his music through their own.

Rest in peace, Ravi Shankar.
