Sad news of the passing of a highly influential musician. All things must pass, as George Harrison wisely said.

Apparently, an apprenticeship to play a Sitar is 16 years!! and it still sounds awful.
Ravi Crossed the divide and there's been no one since.

Until today I didn't know that Norah Jones was his daughter.
