Tributes flow in for sitar maestro Ravi Shankar
Internationally renown sitar maestro, Ravi Shankar died on Wednesday at a San Diego hospital after complaining of breathing problems. His influence on western artists and their music was most evident when he collaborated with former Beatle George Harrison in the 1960's and 70's. Shankar is the father of acclaimed musicians Anoushka Shankar and Norah Jones. From New Delhi, Al Jazeera's Sohail Rahman looks back at the life of a musical legend.
