This year marks 100 years since his birthday on April 7, 1920. In celebration, family, friends and additional “foremost disciples” will remember Shankar through a series of concerts called Ravi Shankar Centennial Concerts.

Among the performers are daughters Norah Jones and Anoushka Shankar, Philip Glass, Dhani Harrison (whose father is late Beatles member George Harrison, who memorably collaborated with Shankar) and an orchestra of the late musician’s “foremost disciples.” The special guests will perform at selected concerts in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, London and New Delhi.
