A LOOK AT PANDIT RAVISHANKAR’S PERFORMANCES ON HIS BIRTHDAY TODAY

Pandit Ravishankar is a legend and will always be.  He was born as Rabindra Shankar Chowdhury in Bengal on April 7, 1920. He was one of the best exponents of Sitar. Listed below are videos of his performances for a beautiful feeling of nostalgia. The genius of this man is reflected in these videos – the passion and his love for music is evident on his face.

He passed away on 12/12/2012.  Music misses him. India misses him. The world misses him.

Happy Birthday Pandit Ravi Shankar!
