Norah Jones Pays Tribute To Her Late Father Ravi Shankar
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.13.2012



NME reports that Norah Jones has paid tribute to her father Ravi Shankar, who died at the age of 92 on Tuesday. The two had a distant relationship and she rarely saw him during her adolescence.

She issued the following statement through her label: "My dad's music touched millions of people. He will be greatly missed by me and music lovers everywhere."

Shankar taught The Beatles' George Harrison how to play the sitar and brought Indian music to the West. Harrison called him the "godfather of world music".

The BBC reported that Shankar died in the early evening on December 11 in San Diego, California. He had been admitted to the hospital last week but didn't recover fully from surgery.

Shankar will receive a posthumous Lifetime Achievement award at the Grammys next year.

Other musicians have commented on Twitter. Tim Burgess wrote: "The great Ravi Shankar has left the building. An amazing talent and the maker of a beautiful sound"

Producer Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer George Martin, added: "I'm very sad to hear of the death of #ravishankar. A beautiful, worldly man with warmth and talent. I bet George is happy to see him again."

Rhys Webb of The Horrors spoke about Shankar on Channel 4. He mentioned the way his style was adopted by The Rolling Stones and The Kinks.
