    What a change he brought to Western music. Rock and Jazz musicians opened their arms to Ravi's music. George Harrison and the Stones brought the Sitar sound to their recordings. He changed music in more ways than just the sound he brought to the West he brought the Benefit Concert concept into its maturity. The Concert For Bangladesh is one of the seminal recordings in Rock. In his large family is his daughter and musician Nora Jones.
