The world has been forever-impacted by this talented, passionate, daring, loving spirit. His music is considered by many, including me, a conduit. The mathematical beauty of his music is inspirational and healing.
He introduced North America to Hindustani music; a true sitar virtuoso. He is survived by his wife Sukanya and his daughters, Norah Jones (singer) & Anoushka Shankar Wright (sitarist) with her husband, Joe Wright; 3 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren. You can read a lovely obituary and tribute here.
When I did a news search on him, these were the first 3 healines to appear:
