Sitar maestro Ravi Shankar dies
Oh no, not again!
RIP. Thanks for your music and opening our ears and minds to your amazing musical culture.
That's news from 2012.
Oops, shows you how much I pay attention! I rarely look at datelines, I end up responding to zombie threads here because of that. A friend of mine just sent me that, I’ll have to find out why, what the deal is. It’s just that so many from that era are moving on, it’s hard to keep track. My bad.
Thank you, thought I was losing my mind. He was a local - Anoushka went to high school with my sister - and I could have sworn I'd seen memorials to him all over town a while ago.
I saw Ravi with John McLaughlin and Shakti as the warmup band for Weather Report in Chicago!
I was completely blown away. A true master of his instrument and genre. RIP Ravi.
Icon. Sad. But now he is back with George.
He was so in touch with the higher powers that one time 'round wasn't enough.
R.I.P. to an incredible musician, performer, and personality.... in case I never said it the first time it happened.
Ah, death old friend.
I am a fool. Noted! I need to check my sources more-carefully...
Reincarnation. What a concept!
but did you know that he was Norah Jones' father?
He died last in 2012 *checks math* that would make him just a teenager this time around. So young!
..and the great wheel of samsara continues to turn.
Yep, he's still dead, since Dec 2012
He'll never catch Generalissimo Francisco Franco.
I'm glad I got the chance to see Ravi Shankar perform a handful of times. Everybody knows he was a master of mood and melody, but what always got me was the rhythms.
Here's a composition in a rhythmic cycle of 6.5 beats. I find it easiest for me (as a Westerner) to follow along with the meter if I count: "one, two, three, four, five, onetwothreeone, two, three, four, five, onetwothreeone..."
Not easy stuff, but Ravi and his drummer make it groove so hard you can dance to it!
