About Ravi Shankar

Ravi Shankar, born on April 7, 1920, was an Indian musician and composer widely regarded as one of the greatest sitar players in the world.

Ravi Shankar's career spanned several decades, during which he collaborated with renowned musicians and composers from various genres, including Western classical music and jazz.
