Maestro Ravi Shankar Dead at 92

India's beloved sitar maestro Ravi Shankar passed away at age 92 in San Diego Tuesday night. The legendary musician was a classical-music ambassador, and is known for bringing traditional Indian music to Western audiences. Shankar remained an active musician until his final days, and was even nominated this year for a Grammy. Shankar—who is also musician Norah Jones’s father—was admitted to the hospital last Thursday after complaining of breathing difficulties.
