Late Night: The First World Musician of Note, Pandit Ravi Shankar Passes

Composer, scholar, teacher and worldwide performer, Pandit Ravi Shankar passed away Tuesday at the Scripps Hospital, in La Jolla, near San Diego, California. He had been admitted on December 6th with breathing difficulties. Shankar was 92.

His collaborations with non-Indian musicians, spanning over half a century, made him an early crossover figure. Shankar was one of the first musicians of the foremost rank whose role in emerging post World War II culture not only created what became known as “world music,” it helped make that label a powerful one.
