Indian classical music maestros are rooting for world music - introduced by sitar legend Pandit Ravi Shankar - as an important vehicle to connect to youth by maintaining aesthetics.
Congress President Sonia voiced grief over the passing of sitar legend Pandit Ravi Shankar, saying the country has lost one of its greatest jewels and a silence has descended on the world of music.
The Prime Minister’s Office, announcing Pandit Ravi Shankar’s demise, termed him “a national treasure”. Appreciative as the title is, it doesn’t even begin to capture the reach and musical influence the sitar maestro had on the world.
Delhi-based sitar player Fateh Ali Khan, who performed with Lady Gaga, says that the Grammy award winning singer not only knows about India`s classical instruments but also appreciated his work.
Anoushka is back in the studio after giving birth to her first child, a son named Zubin, and has signed a deal with Deutsche Grammophon to release her album `Traveller`.
Batio says that playing guitar is not too different from sitar.
