Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of the surgeons and doctors taking care

of him, his body was not able to withstand the strain of the surgery. We were at his side when he passed away.We know that you all feel our loss with us, and we thank you for all of your prayers and good wishes through this difficult time. Although it is a time for sorrow and sadness, it is also a time for all of us to give thanks and to be grateful that we were able to have him as a part of our lives. His spirit and his legacy will live on forever in our hearts and in his music.

"Martedì sera è morto a San Diego, in California, Ravi Shankar, grande musicista indiano e leggendario suonatore di sitar. Shankar aveva 92 anni, negli ultimi giorni la sua salute era peggiorata e non si era ripreso da un’operazione al cuore che aveva subito lo scorso giovedì. Shankar è famoso, tra le altre cose, per aver insegnato a suonare il sitar a George Harrison dei Beatles e per aver contribuito a diffondere la musica indiana in Occidente. È anche il padre della cantante americana Norah Jones."
